Southern California does have seasons, contrary to what folks in other sections of the country may think. In fact, this evening’s performance will guarantee an experience of all four seasons …when the Glendale Symphony Orchestra travels back in time 300 years to Italy, to enjoy Antonio Vivaldi’s best known and most beloved work, ‘The Four Seasons.’

From Italy, then travel to Argentina to experience the four seasons yet again – albeit with a distinctly South American flavor – when the orchestra presents ‘Cuatro Estaciones en Buenos Aires,’ a seething, seductive masterpiece by renowned 20th century tango composer, Astor Piazzola.

And, because it’s impossible to stop dancing once you start to tango, the night will conclude with ‘Three Tangos for Flute and String Orchestra,’ composed by the Glendale Symphony Orchestra’s very own former Music Director, Lalo Schifrin.
