IMPORTANT LOGISTICAL INFORMATION

  • The museum closes at 5.30pm. If you come earlier than that, you'll have to leave for 30 minutes before returning for the concert. Enjoy an autumn walk in the park!
  • Enter for the concert at the ground level entrance at 83rd Street and Fifth Avenue, NOT the main entrance - it won't be open.
  • If you are just coming for the concert, pick up your tickets at the Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium. It opens at 6pm - feel free to come by then and get a glass of wine.

The Spirit of the Age manifests itself in all modes of expression, no matter how disparate. A perfect example is the canvas vs. music. The painter's canvas is (typically) a two-dimensional representation of some corner of the external world, hanging on a wall for all to see any time. Music could hardly be more different: it exists only in the present moment and tends to be about nothing at all beyond itself -- a totally abstract form of expression.

And yet, for reasons mysterious, the colors and atmosphere conjured by Claude Debussy's masterworks seem to evoke Claude Monet's explorations of light and vice versa -- the Claudes were compatriots and contemporaries. The howl of Egon Schiele's loneliness and alienation brings to mind Arnold Schoenberg's shattering dissonances -- the two men worked in Vienna during the same years.

Nowhere can those intersections be more deeply explored than at the fabled Metropolitan Museum of Art -- now proudly exhibiting North America's first comprehensive retrospective devoted to Eugene Delcroix -- the leading painter of the French Romantic. And -- on Monday night, at the Museum's beautiful Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium, they're celebrating the sounds of the French Romantic. What's best of all: They want Groupmuse to join for a Night Out!

The concert explores the creative and personal connections between giants of French Romanticism, including Chopin and Berlioz. Pianist Brian Zeger, one of today's leading collaborative artists, is joined by the rising star mezzo-soprano Samantha Hankey that explores the Spirit of that Age as we seek meaning in direction in our own. The evening also features actor Bill Connington.

Tickets come with free admission to the Museum and while they typically run $50, we've got a stack for only $25 -- a full 50% off! But Nights Out at the Museum almost always sell out, so make moves if you want to join!

And have a great one!
