The Vivaldi Four Seasons Project audio-visual educational initiative bringing classical music into more children's lives

Bringing music, music education and all that it entails back into schools will give our children what is rightly theirs - a powerful sense of ownership and pride in their rich cultural heritage. Feeling comfortable with and empowered by classical music opens doors to a wealth of experiences and environments, and helps open children's minds to creative thinking. Vivaldi's Four Seasons is the ideal music to introduce to children - it is based on beautiful, descriptive poems, and themes that are still relevant today. It is also of the highest artistic quality. This is what our children rightly deserve.
