Waterbury Symphony Orchestra presents Antonio Vivaldi’s (1678-1741) Four Seasons, Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 3:00 pm, in its first live concert since the Covid-19 pandemic began in March, at Woodbury’s Hollow Park.
Vivaldi’s most famous composition, The Four Seasons is comprised of four violin concerti, each of which gives musical expression to a season of the year. The piece is an opportunity to showcase members of the WSO’s string section and will feature two guests who have appeared with the Symphony previously: violinist, Sirena Huang and conductor, Ryan Tani. Huang, a graduate of Yale School of Music, debuted with the WSO in 2010 and this summer performed in the WSO’s virtual concert, Variations on a Fourth! Guest Conductor, Ryan Tani, a Conducting Fellow at the Yale School of Music, worked with the WSO’s Side by Side music education program that pairs students in ASAP with musicians from the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra.
Advance tickets only. There will be no walk-up sales at this concert. Rain date: Sunday, September 27, 2020 at 3:00 p.m.
The WSO has developed concert guidelines in accordance with the CT Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) so that everyone can relax and enjoy the music. Capacity is limited and this concert is expected to sell out. Attendees will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing. A full list of guidelines can be found on the Symphony’s website at www.waterburysymphony.org.
