HYANNIS – The Cape Symphony will perform for the second straight summer at the Cape Cod National Seashore.

A free multimedia performance will feature the Symphony’s principal musicians and a community choral group, along with special guests.

The concert will celebrate the nature, history and sense of community of the Outer Cape on August 25 at the Salt Pond Visitor Center Amphitheater in Eastham at 6:30 p.m.

Performers and speakers joining the Cape Symphony include singer and storyteller Jonathan James-Perry of the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah); Tom Goux and The Rum Soaked Crooks; Allison Beavan, the choral director of an All-Cape Chorale assembled for the occasion; Richard Delaney, the executive director of the Center for Coastal Studies; and Vice Chairwoman of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Council Jessie “Little Doe” Baird.

“The opportunity to perform in such a beautiful setting, and more importantly, to present a free concert that is open to all, is very meaningful to us,” said Jung-Ho Park, the artistic director and conductor of the Cape Symphony. “We’re going to explore the history of the Cape, feature the Native American experience, celebrate the natural beauty of the area and of course, perform rousing and inspirational music.”

The Cape Symphony performed at the National Park Service Centennial celebration last summer.

Bench and lawn chair seating will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The amphitheater is handicap accessible.

Parking is available at the Salt Pond Visitor Center or at the nearby Little Creek Parking Area. A free shuttle to and from the event will be provided.

Attendees are encouraged to bring flashlights for ease in returning to cars.

A rain date has been scheduled for Saturday, August 26 at 6:30 p.m.
