Scheduled for 3 p.m. Sundays, the Virtual Vanguard concerts run about one hour and will be followed by a live question-and-answer session with the musicians. Following the Sunday premieres, each program will remain available on YouTube for just 48 hours.

The romance featured in the Valentine’s Day Bewitched performance is fiery and intense. The program includes works by several 17th century French composers who took their inspiration from the dramatic, classical tales of Circe and Medea, who pursued love and revenge through supernatural means.
