The virtual Schubert festival comes as part of BASS’s 11th season, and will showcase over 100 songs through five programs in celebration of the composer’s career. Following the “Bonus Concert,” audiences will get a chance to check out “Winterreise” on Jan. 16, 2021, followed by “Liebe” on Feb. 13, 2021.

“Schwanengesang” will close out the season on March 13, 2021.
