Back to the Metropolitan Museum. A packed house had braved heavy wind ( street signs were being knocked over on 5th Avenue) and extremely chilly temperatures to join us in the serene warmth of the Medieval Sculpture Court for our last of six concerts.
"Mission Road" -our CD/DVD about the California missions- sold out tonight -perhaps because of all the publicity on the Today Show and WQXR.
Tonight was a night for network newscasters: Martha Teichner and Morley Safer of CBS and Tom Brokaw of NBC were in the audience. Our New York performances also attract lots of friends and relatives and longtime fans.Todd's parents were there, as well as Gabe's parents and aunt and uncle.
Goodbye to the Met until we return on April 16 to perform in the Temple of Dendur. No snow this time ( it's always the perfect ending to a Christmas concert), but it's down to about 20 degrees. Even though New York is the world's greatest Christmas city and it's always hard to leave - we guess we'll be happy to get back to California and the moonlight and palm trees, where 50 degrees seems chilly.
