GUEST CONDUCTOR: Yariv Aloni GUEST ARTISTS: Joan Blackman VIOLIN Rosemary Georgeson NARRATOR

Jeffrey RYAN: Seasons of the Sea Antonio VIVALDI: The Four Seasons (Le Quattro Staggioni) op. 8, No. 1-4

Seasons of the Sea describes the seasons on and by the sea, with words inspired by the 13 moon season of the Coast Salish peoples, who used the tides and seasons of the sea, and the life it brings, as their calendar. The narrative written and performed by storyteller Rosemary Georgeson, Sahtu Dene/Coast Salish artist and violinist Joan Blackman with music by Jeffrey Ryan.
Seasons of the Sea is paired with Vivaldiā€™s Four Seasons which provides a contrast and comparison between past and present and between cultures; it is an evocation and celebration of coastal living through the inspiration of the sea.
