      The timeless music of Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" is renewed here through a fresh and contemporary approach to arranging. This production is geared towards a younger ensemble with smart orchestration and voicings carefully chosen to maximize any ensemble's potential. The use of electronics balances out the ensemble sound without becoming overbearing, and allow a smaller band to create a lush and modern sound on the field!

      Visual ideas are a plenty to help bring each of the seasons to life! This show could serve as a compelling soundtrack for a story of your choice, giving your design team some opportunities to explore conceptual ideas unique to your ensemble. There is a great opportunity here for a strong color pallet to help set the scene as well.

       This show was originally commissioned for the fall of 2017 and was released for the 2018 season. -Perusal scores are available upon request.


Interesting video about the history of the original piece. Good video to show the members of your ensemble
