The Story Orchestra: Four Seasons in One Day

We are delighted to be working with Cambridgeshire Music as part of their Music Live 2019 scheme. We will be visiting schools across Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire on Monday 25th, Tuesday 26th, Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th March.

The musicians of Eboracum Baroque present an interactive workshop including live music, art and craft activities. The story follows a little girl called Isabelle and her dog, Pickle on the adventure of a lifetime across the changing seasons. Alongside the narration of the book (by Vivaldi himself!) and projection of beautiful illustrations hear the wonderful music of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons performed live on baroque instruments. 

The children will then work with Chris Parsons from Eboracum Baroque in a short singing and body percussion workshop focusing on a Thunder Storm body percussion piece to tie in with the seasonal theme. There will also be an arts and crafts activity devised by the illustrator of the book, Jess Courtney Tickle. 

It offers an engaging, interactive way to hear live classical music and combines this with arts and crafts. The whole workshop including the live performance lasts for around 90 minutes. We are passionate about developing the arts and providing exciting opportunities for future generations of musicians and artists.
