One of the most interesting things we experienced, other than walking the streets of New York or the idea of seeing all the paintings in person, was to be at the Metropolitan Friday & Saturday nights. There were fewer people and they were serving wine, which we passed on since we wanted to see art more than drink wine.
Friday night we were so surprised to hear music coming from a great hall and learned it was a spontaneous band! What great fun that was!
The sounds echoed throughout the halls! There were 3 drummers and wind instruments--even a tuba. This shot doesn't do it justice, but it was great fun! I especially liked the music they were playing, which was somewhat modern-- a little dissonant, quite energizing and exciting.
