We celebrate the Cape’s natural beauty – plus Beethoven’s own ode to nature! Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony, filled with babbling brooks, bird calls, and storms, will be the highlight.
With the help of the Harwich Conservation Trust, we’re creating a multimedia experience with an aerial view of our beautiful Cape landscapes accompanied by an evocative new soundtrack. Cape Cod videographer Tom Chartrand of Shoreline Media Productions filmed the incredible footage, and we've commissioned composer Matt Correia to create the "Soaring Over the Sound" music. Check out this sneak preview.
You'll also hear Tan Dun’s “Secret of Wind and Birds,” which uses bird songs, and Stella Sung’s “Oceana,” featuring ship horns and the calls of humpback whales to create the experience of nature. Take a look at this preview of "Oceana."
