THE STORY ORCHESTRA PROJECT
AT THE NCEM

NCEM presents Eboracum Baroque in a live online performance of 'The Story Orchestra: Four Seasons in One Day' featuring music from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, and narration from this much-loved book, illustrated by Jessica Courtney-Tickle, at 2pm Tuesday 23 March. 

Telling the story of a little girl called Isabelle and her dog Pickle who take an adventure of a lifetime across the changing seasons, we’ll hear how Vivaldi makes the Spring blossom, we'll feel the Summer’s heat, gather in the Autumn harvest and gasp at the cold of Winter.

Narrated by Vivaldi himself, the musicians of Eboracum Baroque said "We're so excited to be bringing you a digital version of our adventure through the Four Seasons in just one day and brilliant that we can share this project with so many schools.

There's lots of beautiful music to enjoy from over 300 years ago by the famous composer, Antonio Vivaldi. You'll be able to hear the instruments pretending to sound like birds, bees and dogs and experience a musical thunderstorm too! We look forward to seeing all the beautiful artwork you will be inspired to create!’ ACCESS RESOURCE >

With thanks to our funder at the East Riding Music Hub for making this project possible
