The Cape Symphony has created a new chamber music ensemble that includes the Cape Symphony’s principal musicians along with guest artists. The ensemble, Nth Degree, will be led by Jae Cosmos Lee, the Cape Symphony’s concertmaster.
The Cape Symphony has partnered with Falmouth Academy to host the ensemble’s first four-part concert series, called “The Titans,” a Cape Symphony Presents Production. The first concert is scheduled for Saturday, September 13, at 7:30 PM.
This first series will focus on the music of Brahms, Mozart and Beethoven. The repertoire will be eclectic to showcase different works written for varying number of players and instrumentation.
“Chamber music in its highest form is one of the most intimate ways an audience can enjoy the music of these composers. It steps away from the grandeur of a symphonic piece with a large orchestra and focuses on the interplay among the handful of musicians on stage,” Mr. Lee said.
The Cape Symphony is made up of 75 professional musicians, but with Nth Degree, audiences will have the opportunity to connect with three, four or five Cape Symphony musicians and their guests in a more intimate venue.
Proceeds from sponsorship and ticket sales benefit the Cape Symphony and Falmouth Academy’s capital campaign to build a performing arts center on campus.
This series is sponsored by Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank with support from Wood Lumber Company, M. Duffany Builders, Quicks Hole Tavern and The Valle Group, Inc.
In addition to the performance on September 13, upcoming concert dates are January 10, March 14, and June 6, 2015.
All concerts begin at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $35 for adults and $10 for students and can be purchased at www.capesymphony.org or through the Cape Symphony box office at 508-362-1111. A full series subscription is also available for $133 for all four concerts.
Falmouth Academy is at 7 Highfield Drive in Falmouth
