CC Chamber Sustaining

Director Matthew Scinto will lead the Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra in “Sustaining Sounds” on Sunday at Yarmouth New Church Preservation.

Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra, the Cape’s professional collaborative orchestra, will present the concert “Sustaining Sounds” on Sunday, November 21, at 3 PM at Yarmouth New Church Preservation, 266 Main Street, Route 6A, in Yarmouth Port. The orchestra is conducted by founding music director Matthew Scinto.

The performance will offer a collection of music for strings, featuring selections by composer Caroline Shaw, in a program about sustainability on Cape Cod.

The orchestra will perform Barber’s “Adagio for Strings,” Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings,” and “Entr’acte” by Caroline Shaw. On her work, Ms. Shaw writes: “Entr’acte was written in 2011 after hearing the Brentano Quartet play Haydn’s Op. 77 No. 2 — with their spare and soulful shift to the D-flat major trio in the minuet. It is structured like a minuet and trio, riffing on that classical form but taking it a little further. I love the way some music suddenly takes you to the other side of Alice’s looking glass, in a kind of absurd, subtle, technicolor transition.”

Tickets to “Sustaining Sounds” are $35 general admission, children and students attend for free. Tickets are available through the orchestra’s website, by calling 508-432-1668, or at the door by cash or credit card.

Information regarding COVID-19 policies for this concert series will be made available prior to the performance.

Yarmouth New Church Preservation Foundation is a nonreligious, nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the historically registered former church on Yarmouth Port common as a cultural center for public benefit and use.
