Join us at the Cape Cod National Seashore’s outdoor amphitheater at Salt Pond for a fun-filled pops variety show for music fans of all ages. Symphony at the Seashore is Friday, August 26, 2022 at 7:00 PM.
The event, presented by the National Park Service and the Cape Symphony and sponsored by the Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore and the Music Performance Trust Fund, features a Disney medley, pieces by Antonio Vivaldi and Aaron Copland, a special multimedia tribute to the National Parks and the Cape Cod National Seashore in particular, and stirring patriotic numbers, including a tribute to our armed forces and veterans.
The Cape Symphony will also perform “Wampanoag: Stories for All Time” by Native composer Tonya Wind Singer, a piece that immerses listeners in the sounds of traditional Wampanoag rhythms. Mark Faherty, Science Coordinator at Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and writer of the Weekly Bird Report on CAI, will join Jung-Ho Pak on stage to talk about the relationship between bird songs and music.
Eastham native Dawn Derow will join the Cape Symphony as the special guest. Dawn is a vocal performance graduate of the Boston Conservatory and is an award-winning cabaret singer in New York City who has performed in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall and Birdland. Dawn will perform “Old Cape Cod,” as made famous by Patti Page, “(I Like New York in June) How About You?” and “Skylark,” among other favorites.
