Old Greenwich resident part of World Series wager

Old Greenwich resident and Kansas City Symphony Music Director Michael Stern has been taking part in the World Series hoopla and wagers.

Last week, the Kansas City Symphony issued a video challenge directed at the New York Philharmonic and Music  Director Alan Gilbert.

 

The wagers:

If Royals had lost, Kansas City Symphony Music Director Michael Stern would have ended a classical concert with Bernstein’s “New York, New York, It’s a Helluva Town ” and wear a Mets jersey (and special Mets hat!). The Symphony also would have catered an authentic KC barbeque lunch to the New York Phil musicians.

Since Kansas City won, the New York Phil agreed to perform “Everything’s Up To Date in Kansas City” with Music Director Alan Gilbert wearing a Royals jersey. Michael Stern requested a catered lunch for the musicians featuring authentic New York bagels, lox and cream cheese.

With the Kansas City Royals as victors, the Kansas City Symphony looks forward to bagels and “nice” lox in their future soon.
