Dec. 30, 2020

“Forgotten Voices” (premiering Jan. 13) features students, artists and scholars participating in the BSO OrchKids program “Queens Unseen: Royals Without Crowns,” as well as the work of Black composers including Scott Joplin, Hannah Kendall, Carlos Simon, James Lee III and Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. And “Twelve” (premiering Jan. 27) investigates connections between pop and classical via the music of Bryce Dessner, Jonny Greenwood and, one more time for good luck, Caroline Shaw — the very same Shaw piece (“Entr’acte”) the NatPhil performs on Jan. 3. Episodes are available individually as pay-per-view streams ($10) or as part of a monthly “all-access” plan ($20). Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
