Holiday Music Traditions
Everyone has their favorite holiday carol or hymn, it seems, and these songs have the power to bring back special memories. We enjoy hearing the traditional music; it holds so much meaning for us. A holiday tradition in itself, the Cape Symphony’s Holiday on the Cape is a powerful experience that creates joy for everyone who is present. We put a modern spin on some of the songs you love, and others we perform in their glorious original form. We also bring guest artists whose voices and artistry give their own special touches to this beautiful music.

Together, we’ll celebrate the warmth and love that makes the holiday season wonderful!
