Firebird Circle
Concerts & Lectures


The Firebird Circle is a visionary group of donors that helps the Met illuminate and interpret exhibitions, collections, and galleries through performance and conversation with some of the world's premiere musicians, scholars, and creative artists. Concerts & Lectures presents music and talks that expand the relationship between the visitor and works of art at the Met. Members of the Firebird Circle enjoy social events in museum spaces and private homes, as well as many cocktail receptions before or after scheduled concerts.
