The Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra
ENLIVENING OUR COMMUNITY THROUGH MUSIC

The Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra started as a community orchestra more than half a century ago.  Since then, it has become one of the largest orchestral organizations in Massachusetts.  Artistic Director and Conductor Jung-Ho Pak leads a polished and professional ensemble of 75 musicians, joined by emerging and world-class soloists to bring innovative and accessible programming to the community.

Featured guest artists have included pianists Jon Nakamatsu, Freddy Kempf and Ignat Solzhenitsyn, along with violinists Joshua Bell, Jennifer Frautschi, Miriam Fried, Ayako Yoshida and Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg.   Virtuosos David Shifrin, clarinet, James David Christie, organ, and Paul Neubauer, viola, have also appeared with the orchestra.  Jazz great John Pizzarelli, trumpeter Byron Stripling and soprano Megan Weston have energized CCSO Pops concerts.

The CCSO season includes ten Classical, eleven CapePOPS! performances and a New Year’s Day concert, all held in the 1400-seat Barnstable Performing Arts Center in Hyannis, MA. During the summer, the orchestra performs to thousands of residents and vacationers at outdoor events.

In 2010, the organization introduced CCSO Presents Productions to bring more artists and cultural experiences to the community and support the CCSO’s symphonic performances, currently funded through a combination of ticket sales, private donations, sponsorships and alternative fundraisers.  Celtic fiddler Eileen Ivers, The Vienna Boys Choir and renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma have headlined CCSO Presents Productions.

The CCSO is highly committed to education. There are several programs related to the Season, including free concert talks and Master Classes. Through MusicWorks! Everday, the CCSO brings an array of engaging programs to more than 14,000 students on the Cape and Islands.

In 2010, the CCSO merged with the Cape Cod Conservatory of Music & Arts, forming the largest arts organization in the community.  In addition to musical instruction, the Conservatory offers classes in dance, art and drama for all ages at campuses in West Barnstable and Falmouth.  Its Pre-School program is known for blending traditional academics with the arts.

The Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra is governed by a 26-member Board of Trustees and has a staff of ten professionals. The organization is supported by exceptional trustees, generous sponsors and supporters and enthusiastic volunteers.
