Vivaldi’s Four Seasons
Year after year, season after season, the music of Vivaldi blooms in perennial splendour. Concertmaster Jonathan Crow is the soloist, and leads his TSO colleagues, in Vivaldi’s timeless The Four Seasons. He also leads an American classic—Aaron Copland’s joyous Appalachian Spring, featuring the inspiring hymn, “Simple Gifts”—and a work by Yellowknife composer Carmen Braden that was inspired by the ceaseless summer twilight experienced in extreme northern and southern regions.

Performances are roughly two hours long, including a 20-minute intermission.
