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.
