What does it take to create amazing productions at the Cape’s major cultural institutions?  Gain creative insights from Jung-Ho Pak, Artistic Director of The Cape Symphony, Michael Rader, Artistic Director of The Cape Playhouse and Amanda Wastrom, Cape Cod Museum of Art’s Guest Curator of the Mysteries & Revelations Exhibition.  Mindy Todd, WCAI’s producer and host of the Point will lead the discussion.

Jung Ho Pak was described by the New York Times as a conductor who “radiates enthusiasm” and the Los Angeles Times as “a real grabber,” He has led orchestras throughout our country and around the world, presenting a unique way to fall in love with the symphonic experience. Celebrating ten years with the Cape Symphony, Jung-Ho admits that one of his most “audacious” goals is to reach every single person on Cape Cod with the gift of beautiful music. He has been committed to our education programs (Music Works! Everyday, Music Memory, and the Cape Youth Orchestra among others) since joining in 2007.  For the Masterpiece Series, Jung-Ho presents the great classical works in unexpected and dramatic ways, and brings his sense of fun to the Pops Series concerts.

Michael Rader is a stage director and arts advocate based in New York City. He is the current Artistic Director of the historic Cape Playhouse in Dennis, MA. His diverse career in the arts has afforded him positions such as Artistic Director for Cirque du Soleil, Broadway Liaison and Arts Education Consultant to the New York City Department of Education and Director of Entertainment of the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. During his first year of tenure at The Cape Playhouse, the institution conducted successful fundraising and set it on strong financial footing, launched new educational and outreach programs for the community. Additionally, The Playhouse’s production of Gypsy that he directed broke box office records and was nominated for three Broadway-World awards including Best Musical and Best Direction.
