7 hours after leaving Keene,New Hampshire we arrive at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (having dropped our bags at the hotel and grabbed a snack at Fairway across the street)on a gorgeous spring day for a 7pm performance of "In time of.." Thanks to Hilde Limondjian, longtime head of the Met's Concerts and Lectures, we've been performing there for 20 years, over 50 performances - ever since Eric's been around - so it's our home in New York.

Tomorrow at 8am we get back in the bus for Boston, where our 3pm concert in Jordan Hall for the Celebrity Series will be the last in the weekend triple-header.
