St. Cecilia Music Center announced its 2021 Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Virtual Series lineup.

Patrons can watch four performances from January through April at home for free.

Each piece in each program will feature a particular artist, but many familiar CMS musicians will be performing alongside them, including co-artistic directors and pianist David Finckel and cellist Wu Han. There also will be a preconcert artist profile and a postconcert Q&A with the featured artist of the night. The sessions will be led by Finckel and Han.

The performances can be viewed on SCMC’s website. Availability for all concerts begins at 7 p.m. on the scheduled date and remain available for one week following the air date.
