Did you know?

  • John Jamison is a Walla Walla native and a true Renaissance man. He is knowledgeable in subjects ranging from quantum physics to playing the lute.

  • Vivaldi used four Sonnets, possibly written by himself, as a descriptive basis for his Four Seasons? (Read them here)

  • In Russian composer Leonid Desyatnikov's new arrangement of Piazzolla's Four Seasons, he includes quotes from Vivaldi's original work. Because the seasons are inverted between the northern and southern hemispheres, elements from Vivaldi's L'inverno (winter) are found in Piazzolla's Verano Porteño (summer).
