Do you remember what first led you to discover the magical power of music? Cape Symphony presents a concert for all ages that embraces the innocence of youth and the essence of why we’ve been captivated by powerful music all our lives.
Adults will love the complexity and sophistication of these wonderful pieces. And it’ll make a great family outing, the perfect way to introduce your children and grandchildren to a whole new world.

Among the treasures we’ll perform is The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by Paul Dukas, known worldwide from Walt Disney’s Fantasia (watch the video here). Another is Camille Saint-Saëns' The Carnival of the Animals, filled with sophisticated musical jokes and allusions. Ana Glig and James Rosenblum will perform the double piano.
These beloved works, often heard for the first time in childhood, were written for worldly audiences by highly refined composers, including Benjamin Britten, whose The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra is as brilliant as any of his creations. Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev wrote Peter and the Wolf to encourage children’s interest in music, and will be as wonderful to hear under Jung-Ho Pak’s direction as it was when you were a child.
For the "Tarantella" by David Popper, we'll be joined by a special guest, cellist Cameron Renshaw. Cameron is a true prodigy, making his orchestral solo debut at the age of eight with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra. He has performed in some of the world’s greatest concert halls, such as Carnegie Hall and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. He's also appeared on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" – watch the video to see him talk with Ellen and perform for her and the studio audience. We're excited to have Cameron make his Cape Symphony debut.
