The Sebastians Present VIVALDI'S FOUR SEASONS

The Sebastians honor Bach's great love of Vivaldi with a festive performance of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, alongside a newly-commissioned companion work by Tawnie Olson on Saturday, December 17th at 7:30pm at All Angels' Church. Olson's unique approach to birdsong will shed new light on the changing of the seasons, and pairing Vivaldi's concerti with this world premiere will make for one thrilling evening. The new work by Olson will be a reflection, a mirror, and a response to Vivaldi that will help to further enliven and enrich the concert experience for modern listeners.

The concert will be bookended with music by J. S. Bach, underlining the direct influence these two composers had on each other, despite never meeting.

Every year, the Sebastians connect with audiences through dynamic and vital performances of music of the baroque and classical eras. Hailed as "everywhere sharp-edged and engaging," the Sebastians are known for their "energetic... youthful, vigorous performance style..." and have been called New York's "leading young early-music ensemble" (The New York Times).

Tickets are $40 general, $35 seniors, and $15 students with the exception of St. John Passion, which will be priced by section. Available here.
