Channel Thirteen Celebrates 50 Years, Brings Music to Manhattan

Today is Channel Thirteen’s 50th birthday! To commemorate the occasion, they’ve collaborated with CHI & Partners to organize a mobile celebration. Throughout the day, “The Knights,” a NY-based orchestra, is touring Manhattan on the top of a double-decker bus, stringing tunes for sidewalk strollers and fellow vehicles. The orchestra-bus combination reflects pretty perfectly on Channel Thirteen’s purpose—New York City coverage.  Instead of throwing a glamorous exclusive party, Channel Thirteen brings festivity to their community PBS-style. By which we mean it’s slightly nerdy but inevitably smile-inducing.

Check out the “The Knights” in action via livestream and find out more about the project on THIRTEEN’s site.
