The Metropolitan Museum Of Art Is Hosting Its Magical ‘Balcony Bar’ Concerts Virtually

Once the weather warms up, everyone wants to hang on The Met Rooftop—but the museum’s Balcony Bar is the under-the-radar drinks spot you really want to be at.

Of course, since it will be a little while until we’re back for those after-work cocktails, The Metropolitan Museum of Art is bringing its Balcony Bar (which overlooks the museum’s Great Hall) to you at home!

Just pour yourself a drink and then tune into “The Met Balcony Bar From Home” with ETHEL every Friday evening at 5pm. ETHEL is one of the most acclaimed string quartets in the contemporary classical field.

“With an eye on tradition and an ear to the future, ETHEL is a leading force in concert music’s reengagement with musical vernaculars, fusing diverse traditions into a vibrant sound,” their website reads. The group is made up of is Ralph Farris (viola), Kip Jones (violin), Dorothy Lawson (cello), and Corin Lee (violin).

You can expect the usual classical numbers as well as some of their “signature cutting-edge repertoire.”
