ETHEL and Friends is a music series lovingly programmed for “Date Night” at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Petrie Court Café in the Carroll and Milton Petrie European Sculpture Court, by The Petrie Court Café’s Resident Ensemble, ETHEL.
Petrie Court Café “Date Night” Artists perform 3 sets on Fridays and Saturdays:
6 PM, 7 PM and 8 PM
ETHEL is one of the most acclaimed ensembles in contemporary music. With an eye to tradition and an ear to the future, the quartet is a leading force in concert music’s re-engagement with musical vernaculars, fusing diverse performance practices into a vibrant, engaging sound. ETHEL and ETHEL members perform regularly at the Petrie Court Café, and they welcome celebrated friends to the series–such luminaries as JP Jofre, Alexis Michelle, Kaki King, Allison Loggins-Hull and Raja Rahman.
