The BEST show of the season! Baroque composer Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741), lived and worked in Venice. Our Chorale joins voices with The Madeleine Choir to perform his popular Gloria for choir & orchestra. Our version of Vivaldi’s famous Four Seasons is fun: it’s The Five Seasons, arranged by Hollywood composer Jorge Calandrelli. The Five Seasons is a cool jazz version, performed by clarinetist Michael Kissinger, his quartet and the Northwest Chamber Orchestra. It’s Carnival time in Venice. Ciao!
