Vivaldi's Four Seasons in Music Class

This year is the season of Vivaldi!  

In music class at L’Ecole Française, we are learning about the great Baroque composer Vivaldi and his masterpiece, the Four Seasons.  Organized into four concerti, we started by listening to Vivaldi’s summer concerto that depicts a summer storm.   

Inspired by this wonderful chorus: 
we learned to create a storm with our bodies both in music class and in chorus.

We then listened to Vivaldi’s inspiration of a rainstorm,  
and heard the wind and rain through his music.  We then drew and colored our own version of a summer storm while listening to Vivaldi’s entire summer concerto from the Four Seasons.
