At our August 24 Symphony at the Seashore concert, we’re highlighting everything fun about summer on Cape Cod: beautiful setting, artful collaboration and quintessential summer music.
“The program for this year’s free outdoor concert at the Seashore is so joyful. We’ll take a trip down Broadway with some amazing singers. We’ll present music from Hollywood blockbusters, including Jaws, of course, as well as movies filmed in National Parks, like Star Wars and E.T.,” says Jung-Ho. “
In addition to the United States Air Force Band, performers include the Cape Symphony’s own Operations and Personnel Manager, singer and retired MSgt Jennifer E. Dashnaw, USAF; Cape native and critically acclaimed jazz/pop star Jessica Curran, and Connecticut-based Berklee grad Jesse Terry. Barnstable actor Sherrie Smith Scudder will appear in an excerpt from “Ellis Island: The Dream of America,” giving the audience a sneak peek of this multimedia production for actors and orchestra featured in our September 22 and 23 season opener, Passport to America.
“We are thrilled to be invited back to the Cape Cod National Seashore for our third consecutive summer,” says Jung-Ho. “Songs like ‘I Could Have Danced All Night,’ and ‘Over the Rainbow,’ not to mention ‘Stars and Stripes Forever’ and the ‘Armed Forces Salute’ will have everyone singing along and tapping their feet. It will be a delightfully fun evening in the most wonderful summer setting imaginable.”
