Clarissa Bevilacqua joins the Cape Symphony for Mozartiana in September 2022

"Cosmos Sessions" Event Features Female Composers

Back by popular demand since Jazz at Lincoln Center's sold out performance in July, Cape Symphony and Devil's Purse Brewing Co. team up once again for an incredible night of music making!

Cape Symphony's concertmaster Jae Cosmos Lee has assembled three phenomenal instrumentalists in his first ever “Cosmos Sessions” that will push both musical and emotional boundaries while re-imagining what's possible for the traditional string quartet!

The performance will take place on September 23 from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM at the Devil's Purse Brewing Co. warehouse (directly across parking lot from tap room). Following the concert, please make your way back over to the tap room for the afterparty until 9:00 PM. Here’s a special message from Jae:

"I put together pieces by three different female composers from different walks of life because in our present day, representation is vital and paramount in an art form that has been monopolized by mostly, white male composers for the last five hundred years. All three of these composers, Caroline Shaw, Eleanor Alberga, and Jessie Montgomery not only write music but are also exquisite performers. Two of the three are also composers of color, conjuring musical influences from traditional African and Jamaican folk idioms, jazz, rock, and even hints of techno music sprinkled in their compositions. I wanted to bring these new sounds to the curious and avid listeners of Cape Cod. Very much looking forward to sharing this show with all of you!"

Jae is Concertmaster of the Cape Symphony, and co-founder of A Far Cry, the two-time Grammy-nominated, self-conducted, democratically run chamber orchestra in Boston. He is also first violinist of the Pedroia String Quartet and a podcast enthusiast, moonlighting as the writer & producer of the podcast, Beethoven Bad Boy.

Jae will be joined by Assistant Concertmaster of the Cape Symphony Rhiannon Banerdt, a founding member of the award-winning Ulysses String Quartet; violist Colin Brookes, also a founding member of Ulysses; and cellist Kee-Hyun Kim, founding member of the Grammy Award-winning Parker Quartet.
