Watch Amos Lee collaborate with the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia at The Met
On Saturday night, singer-songwriter Amos Lee headlined The Met for his Philly show in support of last year’s My New Moon album, and it was full of hometown collaborations, including one with the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia.
Under the direction of singer-songwriter Andrew Lipke, the 9-piece string section added an elegant and emotional accompaniment to much of the night’s setlist, particularly “Violin” from 2011’s Mission Bell, a song that’s a huge tear-jerker to begin with. Watch the performance below; My New Moon is available now, and you can stream it here.
