Summer Festival | Orchestra Of The Swan | Earthcycle

SUNDAY 30 JUNE - 7:30 PM

A Vivaldi Four Seasons for the 21st century

Earthcycle contemplates humanity’s impact on Earth’s environment and the disruption of its natural rhythms.

Orchestra of the Swan presents a Four Seasons for the 21st century. Earthcycle is a multi-media experience celebrating the 300th anniversary of Vivaldi’s astonishing work. It is performed alongside a new version of the Four Seasons by jazz composer David Gordon and interspersed with traditional songs by folk singer Jackie Oates.

Enhanced by discreet lighting and specially created footage, Earthcycle highlights the modern world’s greatest concern whilst celebrating nature and our place within it.
