Metropolitan Opry Times for the 2014-2015 Broadcasts

Here’s the schedule for the Metropolitan Opry (as we call it at HAH).  Only five Met broadcasts begin as early as noon (three in December); the rest at 12:30 or 1:00, so HAH won’t lose too much air time.  David Elliott’s “Prelude to the Met” will begin about 10–15 minutes before Met time, always worth listening to if you’re a fan of grand opera.  Also remember David’s “Post-Met Vocal Program,” immediately following the Met broadcasts.
