The Four Seasons of the McKenzie River
Gabriella Smith: Tumblebird Contrails
Vivaldi: The Four Seasons
Elgar: In the South
Violinist Rachel Barton Pine showcases her “bravura technique and soulful musicianship” (New York Times) with Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, which we present with projected images of the McKenzie River in each glorious season of the year. Our tribute to the beauty around us begins with Gabriella Smith’s depiction of a walk along the Pacific coastline and ends with Elgar’s In The South, a vividly colorful homage to the Italian countryside.

About the photo and video submissions
The submission deadline has passed. Thank you so much to the 115 community members who submitted their photos and videos to be considered for this project! Submitted imagery will be selected through a juried process for inclusion in the final production of a full-length video by Attic Media, Inc., which will be projected above the stage as the orchestra plays Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.
This project was made possible with grant support from the Hult Endowment of the Oregon Community Foundation and in partnership with McKenzie River Trust and Travel Lane County.

The public is also invited to share their photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with the hashtag #McKenzie4Seasons.
