Les Délices is back in-person this season, but we haven’t left our digital audience behind. We’re releasing excerpts from every Concert Series program this year in podcast episodes augmented by historical context and artist insights. First up: Winds of Change, an all-instrumental program inspired by the turbulent Age of Revolutions. Featuring A Journey to Freedom by living Haitian composer Sydney Guillaume along with works for flute, oboe, and strings by French-Caribbean composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de St. Georges and Luigi Boccherini. Wherever you are, you can experience the special magic of Les Délices.
