Early music and new music intertwine like never before.

Former KING 5 meteorologist Jeff Renner narrates sonnets for each movement inspired by Seattle’s unique weather patterns. Jean-Féry Rebel’s Les éléments conveys the chaos that preceded the Creation, and Jean-Baptiste Lully’s Suite des quatre saisons dances through the seasons. Hear our world through the music of yesterday and today.
