Vivaldi: Four Seasons

Saturday, September 28, 2019 | 5:00pm

Feel the beauty of a year in full all in one evening with Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. Close your eyes and visualize a summer storm, a cooling autumn breeze, the feel of a flake of snow landing on your nose, and the murmuring streams of spring.

Don’t miss this chance to experience one of the most recognizable and beloved classical music works of all time in the awe-inspiring ambiance of the Washington National Cathedral. The performance introduces the Cathedral’s newest artist-in-residence, Elicia Silverstein, and also features Vivaldi’s “Gloria” and Berio’s “Corale.

"[It] made me aware of everything a violin—really, any string instrument—could do: mourn the loss of life in winter, exult in the spring, embrace the fall, and languidly enjoy the summer.” - AV Club
