Medieval Motet @ The Cloisters

Come join us for the unique opportunity to hear a 40 part motet recording/music installation at Fuentiduena Chapel at the Cloisters.
Cloister Website:‎

Suggested Admission: $25.00

This installation has been featured in a recent article in the NYtimes.

I will be at the entrance to the building (bottom of stairs) about 9:55am wearing a black beret and white scarf. The Cloisters opens at 10:00am and we will be entering promptly. The goal is to arrive early enough to hear the motets without the crowds and to enjoy the rest of the building. Afterwards, we plan to have brunch ($23 est) at the New Leaf Restaurant which is a short walk away from the Cloisters in Fort Tyron Park.

As the museum has group size restriction, I am keeping the RSVP list to 10. Please be considerate to your fellow members and update your status promptly as there is a waitlist.

Please allow for extra travel time due to weekend train scheduling.
I will send my cell phone number out to all the "Yes" RSVP the night before the event.

By Subway/Bus
Take the A train to 190th Street and exit the station by elevator. Walk north along Margaret Corbin Drive for approximately ten minutes or transfer to the M4 bus and ride north one stop.

UPDATE 11/8/13:  The New Leaf Cafe does not take reservations.  It's first come first serve. Should it prove to be too crowded or the wait is too long, we will go to an alternate location.

      Thanks. That's right, and I believe for anyone else who is coming that there's reciprocity with the Met, i.e., membership at the Met gets you in free.

      The Cloisters is a part of the Met, so Met members do get in free! Also, $25 is a suggested donation. It's really a pay what you want/pay what you can fee.

    Just saw that the restaurant doesn't take reservations. As the New Leaf tends to get pretty crowded pretty early, it might be difficult to get a table for 10. I'll be coming by car with someone who has limited mobility, so, since there aren't any other restaurants that close by, we may not be able to make lunch. In that case, it might be best if we go to the Cloisters on our own and give someone on the wait list the chance to join the group. Hope you all have fun. I'm sorry we won't be able to be a part of it.

    Do you think we should make reservations at the New Leaf Cafe for brunch? There are 10 of us and if we don't reserve we may not be able to eat there.

      It's a lovely place for lunch. Unfortunately I can't stay for it.

    Me and my g/haven't been to a meetup in the last year, but we love chamber music and vocal works. This sounds like fun!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
