Moonlit Knights

October 9 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm ACDT

Moonlit Knights

Moonlit Knights is beautiful piano music by the river, under the light of the full moon.


Under October’s full moon and a blanket of stars, sit by the Murray River and be serenaded by the sounds of piano music performed by Emma Knights.

The Location:

The lovely Long Island Reserve, Murray Bridge is the perfect space for a concert under the full moon due to the area’s lower light pollution and its proximity to the river. Bring your picnic rug or chair, although this isn’t a typical sit-and-watch concert. Lay back, rest, and let the music wash over you as you take in the sights and sounds of the night sky. Arrive early to set yourself up before it gets dark, lights will be provided to pack up. The concert will run from approximately 7.30 pm for an hour, taking in the sunset and allowing time to bathe under the moon.

The Music:

The concert will include all your favourite pieces and songs about the moon. From Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata to Katie Melua’s Blame it on the Moon, Emma has it covered. Emma will also perform some of her original music inspired by the moon. Be inspired by the nocturnal nature around us, bring a picnic, a thermos of cacao, a sketchbook or a journal.

The cost:

To prevent me from having to fence off the area, tickets are by donation. Bookings are required even if your donation is zero. You are able to make a donation if you cannot attend but wish to support the event.


For those travelling to Moonlit Knights, there is plenty of lovely accommodation and dinner options in Murray Bridge. The concert concludes before 9 pm at the latest allowing you this unique experience before bedtime!
