Vivaldi’s Four Season heralds the return of local violinist Simone Porter whose career is now in full international stride with a command of technical chops, elegant vibrato and the expressive panache to bring Vivaldi’s most cherished concertos to life.  Celebrate your Principal Trumpet Marissa Benedict as she takes center stage, while Esmail’s Teen Murti draws inspiration from Hindi traditional raag melodies combined with Western techniques – the result is a sonorously magical experience.
