What Makes It Great?® Vivaldi The Four Seasons
As an early and enduringly popular example of program music—the kind that paints pictures or tells a story—Vivaldi’s set of violin concertos that he himself called The Four Seasons is the perfect piece for Rob Kapilow. He explores it through spoken introductions and musical examples, then conducts two of the four concertos with Timothy Chooi, the 25-year-old Canadian violin sensation, as the soloist.

Concert running time is approximately two hours including a 20-minute intermission. The first half includes Rob Kapilow's "What Makes It Great?®" presentation, followed by a 20-minute intermission. The orchestra will then perform the "Spring" and "Summer" movements from The Four Seasons, followed by a Q&A with the audience.
