What You'll Get
- $25 for one ticket for best available seating (up to $54.50 value)
Music Worcester: Venice Baroque Orchestra
- The Program: Corelli’s Concerto grosso in D Major, op. VI, No. 4; Galuppi’s Concerto a quattro No. 2 in G Major; Avison’s Concerto grosso No. 8 in E Minor; and Geminiani’s Concerto grosso in D minor “La Follia”
- The Highlights: Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, a group of four violin concerti that each give a voice to one season of the year. When the piece originally premiered, Vivaldi published accompanying poems that detailed what about each season the music was intended to summon—this marked one of the earliest examples of music with a narrative element.
- Pre-Show Extra: Art historian Antonella Doucette is on hand an hour before the concert to lead a discussion about the Baroque period and its influence on art and music.

About Music Worcester
Music Worcester presents music and dance performances in a season of events running from Fall to Spring in a variety of fine venues in Worcester. Founded in 1858 and once known as the Worcester Music Festival, the present programming is orchestras, chamber and jazz ensemble, solo recitals, world music, dance and ballet, classical and modern, iconic and innovative, by artists from around the world. Indeed, the breadth and reach of its concerts are akin to those of a major classical music or dance festival, drawing in innovative groups and performers from around the world.
Many of these decidedly modern events blossom amid the elegant vaulted ceilings, intricate archways, and grand pipe organ of Mechanics Hall. The space’s finely calibrated acoustics show off the sounds of classical concerts, ballets, and popular music, and its near-perfect aural qualities have made it a favorite destination for recording and echo-making competitions.
