CMS also announces the extension of its online concert series with Front Row Summer Evenings, six weeks of at-home programming beginning July 12.  The series is comprised of HD performance video from the CMS archive, featuring the thoughtfully curated repertoire that CMS audiences have come to expect and enjoy. About the Summer Evenings series programming, Artistic Directors David Finckel and Wu Han commented: “Summer Evenings concerts have traditionally presented music that breathes the pleasant airs of the season, and these concerts not only follow but enhance that idea with the inclusion of joyful works from the Baroque era to open every program. We hope to lift hearts, minds and spirits over the coming months with music that is truly restorative.”

The concerts will be streamed on Sundays at 5:00 pm from July 12 through August 16. Hosted by CMS co-Artistic Directors David Finckel and Wu Han, each concert will also include introductions to the music by the artists, visual program notes and end with a live Q&A with featured artists. Summer Evenings streams will be available on the CMS website and social media channels for one week after the original broadcast time. Audience questions for the live Q&A may be submitted prior to the weekly broadcast on social media or during the concert on the CMS website.
