We're really excited to be able to share with you the recording from our performance of Vivaldi's 4 Seasons from the Global Orchestra Launch on the 28th of March 2014.
Earth Hour 2014 saw hundreds of millions of people across 162 countries & territories, 7000 cities joining together to celebrate their commitment to the planet - showing us what is possible when we all connect behind a common cause.
• 162 Countries, 7000+ Cities
• 150 Million + Participants
• 60,000+ News items worldwide
Our Global Orchestra event for Earth Hour 2014 was a sell out. Vivaldi's Four Seasons was performed by an ensemble of Australia's finest musicians performance in the historic local Balmain Town Hall, and was streamed live on both the Earth Hour Australia and Earth Hour Global websites. It was viewed 132,000 times.
Within our recording, Angela Catterns is heard reading the poems at the beginning of each movement -they were supposedly written by Vivaldi himself. The laughter you are hearing is the response to the funny hats, and singlets the players are changing into, plus there was the added visual element of a collection of photo's and videos that were shown on the night with people and animals depicted during each season. Thanks to Nathan Waks and Candice Williams for the video/slide reels - hilarious!
