NORWALK, Conn. – A man from Norwalk will appear on a national television quiz show Thursday.
Andrew Knebel, a 27-year-old classical violist from Norwalk, will compete on "Jeopardy!" according to a publicist. Knebel was a member of the Norwalk Youth Symphony from 1999 to 2002, according to the NYS website. The show is broadcast at 7 p.m. on WTNH-TV and WABC-TV.
He is quoted as saying, "I'm currently in my fifth year at the Hartt School of Music/University of Hartford pursuing a double degree in Viola Performance and Music Education, where I am in the honors chamber music program, Performance 20/20. I am also currently on faculty at Summertrios, a camp for adult amateur chamber musicians. I was in Concert Orchestra for two years and Principal Orchestra for two years, my last year serving as principal violist. NYS was where I met most of my former and current chamber music partners and for that I am forever grateful!"
