You’ll experience all four seasons in one night as you hear the eternal melodies of the Italian Baroque composer.
Under the glow of hundreds of candles, you’ll almost feel the lushness and beauty of “Spring”, as Ash Quartet give you their take on the composer’s first concerto. You’ll follow the shepherd and his flock as their stuck in a summer rainstorm, as “Summer” sounds through the sanctuary of St. Patrick’s Cathedral. You’ll rejoice and celebrate the harvest as “Autumn” resonates through the church’s wide halls. Closing the evening, Ash Quartet will play the high tones, which unequivocally represent “Winter” and its freezing weather.
