For the Miracles: A Holiday Celebration

Sunday, December 9
3:00 pm–5:00 pm

Metropolitan Museum Of Art (1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street)
$65, $1/ages 6–16, includes same-day museum admission

Hear two joyous works about two December holidays sung by the angelic voices of the Young People’s Chorus of New York City in a family-friendly holiday concert. Each of the eight short movements in Samuel Adler’s The Flames of Freedom represents one of the eight lights of Hanukkah. The work was written for three-part, treble-voice choir to provide a counterpoint to Britten’s Christmas cantata, A Ceremony of Carols. Follow up with a visit to the stunning Metropolitan Museum Tree & Menorah.

Eats & Treats: Inside the museum, the American Wing Cafe has soups, salads, sandwiches and a gorgeous view of Central Park. 'the cafeteria' in the basement is less scenic but has more selection - pasta, sushi, hot entrees, a frozen yogurt sundae bar and kids' meals that come in cardboard taxis. The Roof Garden has some snacks (and you can bring your own and nosh with a view). Or head to Shake Shack (86th between Lexington & Third) or the chill Pizza Beach (81st & Third). Pick up one of the city's best black-and-white cookies at William Greenberg (1100 Madison between 82nd & 83rd).
