A Feb. 12 [program will feature] pieces … by Swiss-American composer Ernest Bloch, pioneering African-American composer Florence Price, and J.S. Bach…. It’ll be followed by concerts on March 26, April 23, May 2 and June 18. The March concert will feature a new concerto by composer Reinaldo Moya [featuring] pianist Joyce Yang…. Each performance will be pre-taped at the Collins Center for the Arts, and will be available to watch for 30 days…. Should circumstances begin to change in the spring for restrictions on gatherings, BSO executive director Brian Hinrichs said the orchestra would begin to consider allowing people in to watch the concerts being taped.”
