We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve reached an agreement with Jung-Ho to extend his contract for five years. As you know, Jung-Ho Pak joined the Cape Symphony in 2007 and has led the orchestra to new heights in high-quality entertainment experiences.
During Jung-Ho’s tenure, we’ve transformed the concert experience into an event meant for everyone, especially for those attending for the first time. By presenting intriguing themes and extraordinary artists from around the world, the Masterpiece events became something far from the traditional classical concert.
We’ve added many talented musicians to the orchestra, showcasing their gifts, and built partnerships with businesses, non-profits, and arts organizations across the Cape and Islands. We also created the New Year’s Day Party, now an annual tradition, and added more performances to the popular CapePOPS! Series, including the growth of the enormously successful "Holiday on the Cape" into a six-performance long weekend event.
Jung-Ho is a gifted educator, and his commitment to youth education on the Cape happens through programs like the Young People’s Concert, Carnegie Hall’s Link Up, and Virtuoso Visits, in which he frequently visits Cape schools to work with both ensembles and conductors.
Jung-Ho’s new contract represents our shared commitment to a bright future for the Cape Symphony. His unquestioned leadership and dedication to the Cape Symphony will help us achieve our long-term goals and elevate our mission to Inspire Joy.
We look forward to accomplishing great things together, on the stage, in classrooms, and out in the community. We know you’ll join us in applauding this announcement!
