The Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra is presenting its third free concert as part of the orchestra’s residency at Steeple Street Music Academy in Mashpee. The concerts have been developed to raise money for the school’s Raise the Bar Fund, which helps subsidize music lessons for students in need.
The music academy will soon begin renovations on its Mashpee Commons location, to open a daycare and preschool in the near future, a unique program incorporating music into childcare.
Titled “Violin Heroes,” the virtual concert was recorded at the school’s Mashpee location and will feature violinists Jean Huang and Michael Hustedde with a program of Bach, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, Prokofiev and music by Jesse MacDonald, another violinist with the Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra. The concert is reflective of the times of change the violin has experienced over the past three centuries, aiming to highlight a variety of approaches by a variety of composers. Both Ms. Huang and Mr. Hustedde have performed nationally and internationally with a variety of orchestras and ensembles, and maintain their own teaching studios in the Boston area.
The concert will be presented on the Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra YouTube page, as well as on the orchestra’s website, on Wednesday, April 14, at 7 PM.
Donations to Steeple Street Music Academy’s Raise the Bar Fund will be accepted through the academy’s website.
