The Philharmonic Society of Orange County brings the Venice Baroque Orchestra to Southern California on their world-premiere tour titled “The Seasons Project,” a creative juxtaposition of Vivaldi’s Le Quattro Staggioni (The Four Seasons), and Philip Glass’ Violin Concerto No.2 , The American Four Seasons, with Grammy-nominated violinist Robert McDuffie, for whom Glass’ work was written.
The Venice Baroque Orchestra is one of Europe’s premier ensembles devoted to period-instrument performance, receiving wide critical acclaim for performances throughout North America, Europe, South America, and Japan. The orchestra’s recordings on the Sony Classical label include a release of The Four Seasons, and the orchestra’s work has received international recognition with the Diapason D’Or, Choc du Monde de la Musique, Echo Award, and the Edison Award.
This outstanding ensemble with their world-premiere tour will give a timeless new breath to the changing of the seasons this year. The drive is really not so far, and the Orange County Performing Arts Center is seriously worth checking out if you have not already had the experience.

Dean Corey will present a pre-concert lecture at 7 p.m.
Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, Orange County Performing Arts Center,
