One of the benefits of the MET Orchestra Spotlight Series concerts is that it allows us to come together in a safe way to make music together again.
This large brass and percussion ensemble marks the first time that we have performed together in one year. What a bittersweet and beautiful time for us!
We thank the arranger, Thomas Jöstlein who kindly donated his talents to arrange Wagner’s Tannhäuser specifically for our MET Orchestra Musicians. We would also like to thank our sponsor for this concert, the Wagner Society of New York!
This was filmed by Eli Krauss at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the Bronx. We thank its Pastor, Father Jose Felix Ortega and Stephen Rapp, Music Director for allowing us to use their beautiful church!
