It's official! Acclaimed concert pianist Hyperion Knight has been voted "2012 Entertainer of the Year" by the discerning guests of Silversea Cruises. Knight was presented with the award aboard Silver Spirit earlier this month.
A pianist equally at home in serious classics and popular standards, Knight's recordings range from Beethoven to the Beatles. In addition to performing for Silversea guests, he has appeared with orchestras across the United States, and has been a featured entertainer at Manhattan’s Rainbow Room and Essex House.
A Gershwin enthusiast, he has recorded two CDs devoted to unique arrangements of Gershwin’s music, and frequently performs both Rhapsody in Blue and the Concerto in F, most recently with the Santa Fe, Long Beach and New Mexico Symphony Orchestras. Other recent performances include appearances with the Cleveland Philharmonic, Utah Symphony and the Kansas City Philharmonia.
We're delighted to be able to offer our guests an entertainment programme that features such accomplished artists as Hyperion Knight, whose next Silversea performance takes place aboard Silver Whisper's World Cruise next month.
