As part of the 2022 Town of Barnstable Fourth of July Celebrations, the Cape Symphony led by Artistic Director & Conductor Jung-Ho Pak and featuring special guests will perform on Monday, July 4, 2022 at 8:00 PM at Michael K. Aselton Memorial Park in Hyannis. The performance, blending pop, Broadway, patriotic, and Americana music, is free and no tickets are required.
This unique holiday concert is the culmination of a day full of patriotic traditions, with a boat parade and fun activities for families, residents, and visitors of all ages.
“Joy4July” will feature guest artists Mark Kopitzke and LaKisha Jones. LaKisha was an “American Idol” finalist and appeared on Broadway as Sophia in The Color Purple. LaKisha will perform favorite hits by Whitney Houston, Donna Summer, Tina Turner, and Aretha Franklin, including “Proud Mary,” “Respect,” and “Last Dance.” Mark Kopitzke is the lead singer of the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and performs at Disneyland with the West Coast’s hottest little big band, Phat Cat Swinger. Channeling a bit of Michael Bublé with a dash of Frank Sinatra, Mark will present swinging big band numbers including “Feeling Good,” and “Beautiful Day.” Both talented and wildly popular vocalists have performed with the Cape Symphony – Mark appeared in the recent “Kings of Swing & Soul” and LaKisha joined the orchestra for the 2019 “New Year’s Day Party.”
Jung-Ho Pak spoke with Town Talk host Paula Hersey about "Joy4July" in this video.
