Antonio Vivaldi - Jazz "Five Seasons"

Antonio Vivaldi - Gloria

Dr. Maria Manzo, Conductor

Michael Kissinger Jazz Quartet

Bravo! Chamber Choir / NW Chamber Orchestra

​VENUE: St. Luke's Episcopal Church / Vancouver WA

This will be the BEST show of the year!  We perform two audience favorites by the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741).  His Gloria is a joyous piece that reflects the vibrant musical life of Venice.  The Bravo! Chorale joins with The Madeleine Choir to present this popular piece.  Our version of Vivaldi's Four Seasons is something different: it’s The Five Seasons – a cool jazz version of Vivaldi’s music for clarinet, strings, bass, drums and piano.  Arranged by Hollywood film composer Jorge Calandrelli, The Five Seasons will be performed by clarinetist Michael Kissinger, his jazz quartet and our Northwest Chamber Orchestra.  It’s Carnival time, Ciao! 

Brazilian Jazz Singer - Claudia Villela

VENUE: St. Luke's Episcopal Church / Vancouver WA


Singer and composer Claudia Villela was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro.  Claudia absorbed the sounds of Brazil all around her: Samba, Bossa Nova, Partido Alto, Choro, Baiao, Maracatu, as well as influences from traditional Jazz to classical to Avant Gardé.  Claudia sings mostly in Portuguese, interpreting lyrics with keen emotional insight and supple rhythmic command.  Get ready for a GREAT show!
