FRIDAY / NOVEMBER 13, 5:00–5:30 P.M. Free

Fix yourself a drink and experience The Met’s Balcony Bar from home with ETHEL, 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. Expect familiar classical tunes mixed with a fair share of the group’s signature cutting-edge repertoire. Guest artists and collaborators also make periodic appearances.

ETHEL is Ralph Farris (viola), Kip Jones (violin), Dorothy Lawson (cello), and Corin Lee (violin).
