The Baroque Orchestra (grades 2-3)
Join the Greenwich Symphony as we explore the beautiful Baroque period. Before Mozart and Beethoven, before Tchaikovsky and Copland, we had Baroque composers. Learn about the musical technique and style, size of the orchestra, and instrumentation that started it all. Hear Pachelbel’s Canon and music by Handel and Bach. Watch and listen to the awakening of “Spring,” the thunderstorms of “Summer,” and the icy chill and crackling fire of “Winter” as our violin soloist performs selections from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.
