On this week’s episode of SymphonyCast, host Julie Amacher goes back to the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, when arts organizations throughout the world demonstrated their extraordinary determination and resilience as they found ways to continue practicing their craft and bringing music to their audiences, even if in a different format than before. “Light in a Time of Darkness” features works recorded live in Buffalo in 2020 and 2021 as part of the BPO OnDemand series, streamed to audiences during the height of the pandemic.
