Cape Symphony Heading to the Vineyard for First Time in Decades

OAK BLUFFS – For the first time in decades the Cape Symphony will be headed to Martha’s Vineyard for a special performance in late June.

“Symphony on the Vineyard” will include Broadway tunes, pieces from film and television and patriotic favorites inside the Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs.

“It’s going to be an old-fashioned pops concert,” said Jung-Ho Pak, the conductor and artistic director for the Cape Symphony. “I love these kinds of concerts. It’s going to be something for everyone. It’s going to be a huge buffet of different styles.”

Pak says the Tabernacle is a perfect venue.

“We are going to be performing in a location that is so incredibly [ideal] and very romantic in my mind,” he said.

The concert will also feature Broadway star and Cape native Fred Inkley and Martha’s Vineyard singer Siren Mayhew.

Pak hopes the concert is something that can be held annually.

“So far we have had a huge reaction from the Martha’s Vineyard community,” he said. “And because of that we are planning for the future and we would love to have a home there.”

Pak said the Cape Symphony is also looking at possible venues to perform on Nantucket as well.

“Our title is the Cape Symphony and in that, is inherent, are the islands,” he said. “So we want to belong to every geographic area of the Cape.”

The event is a partnership with Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank and is only the second time the orchestra has performed on one of the islands.

The concert will be held June 29 at 6 p.m. Tickets are available online at and are $35 dollars in advance and $40 at the gate the day of the performance.
