About

HPO Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte hosts an educational adventure through Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, paired with the poetry and science that inspired the music. The Four Seasons concert experience will allow your students to explore poetry and the science of weather with the immersive sound of a full symphony orchestra, blending the arts with literacy and demonstrating how music can bring the elements of storytelling to life. Students will also learn about instruments and instrument families, as well as the important roles of the conductor and soloist.

Supplementary teaching materials will be provided.

The performance will be available to watch online, and on-demand starting Monday, May 30 until Monday, June 13, 2022.
