… Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra (CCCO), Cape Cod’s professional collaborative orchestra, presents its second annual An Afternoon of Chamber Music winter concert, on Sunday, February 16, 3 pm, at Pilgrim Congregational Church, 533 Main Street, Rt. 28, Harwich Port.  A reception follows the concert with an opportunity to meet the musicians. The Orchestra is conducted by Music Director Matthew Scinto, and the performance features Charles Overton, harp.  A pre-concert student showcase performs at 2:15 pm.


“We might as well title this concert Dance from the Americas, with Aaron Copland’s iconic American ballet ‘Appalachian Spring’ and Astor Piazolla’s ‘History of the Tango’, featuring our harpist Charles Overton and violinist Emma Powell,” shares Director Scinto.  “I’m also pleased to be featuring three very talented Cape Cod student musicians in our pre-concert showcase – pianist James DellaMorte (senior at Sturgis Charter School), cellist Andrew Juan (junior at Sturgis Charter School), and soprano Olivia Di Bari (senior at Nauset Regional High School).”


Members of Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra present An Afternoon of Chamber Music, featuring a program centered on harp, strings and winds, highlighting the exceptional talent of Charles Overton, harp, in Grandjany’s “Rhapsodie, Op. 10” and Piazzolla’s “Histoire du Tango”, paired with Dvořák’s “Piano Quartet”, rounding out to a rousing finish with the ever-beloved Copland “Appalachian Spring Suite”.


“In Copland’s case, I really don’t think he quite understood the impact that his work would have on the 1944 American music scene.  He didn’t even have a title for the work, until choreographer Martha Graham suggested “Appalachian Spring” to him,” shares Scinto.  “It is a work that captures the essence of our vast country, written while World War II raged on in Europe. For me, it contains the somber quality of a country in war, whilst conveying the wit and joy of folk music. It is a timeless portrait of Americana.”


Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra, founded in 2018, is inspired by Scinto’s vision for the future of classical music on Cape Cod.  He is fulfilling his mission to collaborate with local Cape individuals, arts organizations, and causes to create a unique concert experience of high quality, enriching, and memorable orchestral music. Featuring living composers is at the forefront of his plans; bringing audiences closer to music and the beauty found across Cape Cod communities.
