We regret that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our 2020-21 Cape Symphony season will be rescheduled to 2021-22, because the Barnstable Public School buildings, including the Barnstable Performing Arts Center, will not be available to outside organizations during the 2020-21 school year.

Our musicians, staff, and trustees are all deeply saddened by this situation, as we know you are. We will greatly miss performing for you. Please know that we’re optimistic about the future, and we promise that when we return, the Cape Symphony experience will be better than ever!

With the blue Danube flowing between the mighty cities of Buda and Pest, and its blend of Western European and Gypsy cultures, Hungary is a powerful inspiration for artists whose imaginations were captured by its romantic beauty. Hungary’s greatest classical composers Frank Lizst, with his famous “Hungarian Rhapsody,” and Béla Bartók, who wrote “Hungarian Sketches,” were inspired by their country’s folk traditions and thrilling Gypsy melodies as was Johannes Brahms with his “Hungarian Dances.”

Another of Hungary’s most well-known composers, Zoltán Kodály took traditional folk music as the basis for an opera about a veteran, Háry János, who tells tall tales. Joined by the world-renowned Gypsy
violinist Roby Lakatos and The Roby Lakatos Ensemble, the Cape Symphony explores the rich culture and traditions of Hungary.
