The Four Seasons

The Four Seasons is famous among musicians and music lovers, and lends itself to continual renewal and reinvention. This project is created around our ballet The Four Seasons by choreographer Jenna Lee. We believe The Four Seasons is a very accessible piece of classical art to inspire young children. Our lessons offer students an introduction to this famous work through a range of listening and creating activities.
