Musica Angelica Baroque Orchestra is proud to bring one of the most celebrated concertos of the baroque period to the stage April 20 (Long Beach) and April 21 (Los Angeles)—Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

“Vivaldi Il Veneziano” or Vivaldi the Venetian, Antonio Vivaldi had red-hair and was ordained to the priesthood at age 25. Known as “The Red Priest,” he honed his musical craft while working at the Ospedale della Pietà (a convent and school in Venice), where he taught and composed for orphaned girls. His concertos, whether related to a season or not, are said to display countless examples of sequential mastery and technical bravado which regularly result in exciting moments for listener and performer alike.
