Cape Symphony presents Passport to Ireland in May 2022

The Cape Symphony Announces New Dates for “Passport to Ireland”

Event rescheduled due to January snowstorm will now take place in May

HYANNIS, MA—February 17, 2022

The Cape Symphony is pleased to announce that the rescheduled Passport to Ireland performances will take place on Saturday, May 28 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, May 29 at 3:00 PM.

The late January snowstorm that brought blizzard conditions to Cape Cod caused the postponement of the “Passport” event. For customers holding tickets with the January performance dates and times, those tickets will be valid for the May performances. The remaining tickets for the May performances are on sale now; customers are encouraged to purchase their seats now as the show is expected to sell out.

At this Masterpiece concert, conducted by Jung-Ho Pak, the Cape Symphony musicians will be joined by special guest stars GRAMMY-winning Irish fiddler Eileen Ivers and Celtic harpist Maeve Gilchrist.

“I’ve learned that Cape Cod weather can be challenging,” joked Michael Albaugh, Executive Director, Cape Symphony. “Seriously, we’re so grateful to our customers who purchased tickets to Passport to Ireland and are delighted that we can present this wonderful show in May.”

To ensure the health and well-being of its customers, staff, and community, the Cape Symphony has put the following safeguards in place for all concerts: all attendees will be required to wear a mask and all attendees are required to provide proof of vaccination at the concert. Children ages six and up are welcome to attend but they must follow the health and safety policies. If the child is not fully vaccinated, they must have a negative test result. COVID-19 tests must be administered by a third party. Self-administered tests (like an at-home kit from a drugstore) will not be accepted. All Cape Symphony staff and musicians have provided proof of vaccination, and will wear masks at the concert (note that the wind players will not be masked on stage).
