When Vivaldi wrote his Four Seasons in 1723, the world was a difference place. As nature continues to inspire art, Vivaldi’s piece remains popular and still has a place in today’s society. But how do we respond when the world around us is changing? 

Changing Seasons is our new multi-genre spectacular, created as a reflection on the climate emergency and its impact on our future. This exciting production mixes Vivaldi’s classic with new commissions from four talented local arts groups. Working with professional composers Fiona Brice and Sarah Freestone, four community groups – Queer Croydon, Club Soda, Subrang Arts and CMA – will perform their unique pieces which have been inspired by the seasonal themes in Vivaldi’s music. These new works respond to our changing world, creating a fusion of genres and art forms that culminate in a spectacular performance at Fairfield Halls.

Complete with new poetry from Croydon poet Jeremiah Brown, dance performances and engaging video content to introduce each artist, Changing Seasons is an accessible and proudly Croydon-made performance suitable for audiences of all ages. 

As part of this event, we’re hosting a free afternoon showcase in the public open spaces of Fairfield Halls, featuring local talent from over 30 music and dance groups.
