With winter upon us, do you find yourself missing the charm of spring and warmth of summer? Experience them this month, as the Omaha Symphony presents Vivaldi’s Four Seasons November 21 and 22 at the Holland Performing Arts Center. This musical postcard of spring, summer, autumn, and winter is one of the most beloved classical works of all time.

This program involves an exciting first for Omaha Symphony audiences! Guest conductor Michael Christie has written “Keeping Score,” a short, easy-to-follow “real time” guide to this concert’s music, including notes about the composer’s intentions and the orchestra’s interpretation. Numbers corresponding to those in the guide are then discreetly projected above the orchestra. Christie is the Virginia G. Piper Music Director of the Phoenix Symphony and music director of the Brooklyn Philharmonic. This concert also features violin soloist, Margaret Batjer. She currently serves as concertmaster of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. Batjer is also a faculty member with the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California.
