The Art
of Music

Historical Context

In 2019, The Met produced “Play It Loud, Instruments of Rock n Roll” —- it was the first time a major museum exhibition examined the instruments of rock and roll. It turned out to be the second most successful exhibition in The Met’s history.

Playing off of this idea, The Art of Music brings together music and art in an exciting way. This is an opportunity to meet and listen to the stories of industry legends. All of this takes place against a backdrop of history, as each conversation happens in famed institutions like The Met and others.

Fans will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with artists, meeting them and listening to their story in an intimate setting. The conversation is then shown later on PBS.
