Happy Belated Birthday, Vivaldi!

I’m a big music nerd (among many, many other things), especially classical, so I thought I’d take a moment to wish Baroque composer Antonio Vivaldi a Happy Belated 332nd Birthday!  He was born March 4, 1678 and was one of the leading Italian string composers of the Baroque Period.  His Four Seasons is one of his most notable works.  FUN FACT:  Vivaldi was an ordained priest and had blazing red hair, hence why he was nicknamed “the Red Priest.”

Buon compleanno, Vivaldi!
