EAST FALMOUTH – Young students from across Cape Cod showed off their musical knowledge Wednesday at the Cape Symphony and Conservatory’s Annual Music Memory program year end concert.

The event was livestreamed from the Cape Cod Church in East Falmouth to schools around the Cape.

This year’s concert featured musicians from the Cape Symphony and the Cape Conservatory Cjazz students.

“I’m hoping that it will light a fire of passion and appreciation in students for the rest of their lives,” said Director of Community Education George Scharr. “We know that the way things are introduced and the way they’re presented to all of us as human beings stays with us as a life-long impression.”

The concert also included three additional feature pieces which were played from start to finish.Music Memory - 2
