Cape Symphony to Perform People’s Free Concert at National Seashore on August 25
The Lower Cape Outreach Council is pleased to partner with the Cape Cod Symphony and the National Park Service to bring the people’s free concert, Sanctuary, performed by the Cape Cod Symphony, to the Salt Pond Visitor’s Center in Eastham on Friday, August 25 at 6:30 pm. Through music, prose, and images, the event will celebrate the extraordinary nature, history, and sense of community that make the Outer Cape a sanctuary for an abundance of living things, including people.
Larry Marsland, CEO of the Lower Cape Outreach Council explains the importance of the free concert, “Lower Cape Outreach Council provides nutritious food to nearly 2,000 Cape Cod households in need. Hundreds of families and individuals remain in their homes because we provide emergency financial assistance. Still, nourishment means more than food and shelter. This is a people’s concert free for everyone, for all of us. It’s a chance to nourish the soul and inspire the dreams of all of us, rich or poor. We are proud to bring this event to our friends and neighbors on the Lower Cape.”
The multimedia performance features the symphony’s principal musicians and special guests including: singer and storyteller Jonathan James-Perry of the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah); Tom Goux and The Rum Soaked Crooks; Allison Beavan, Choral Director of an all-Cape chorale assembled for the occasion; Mindy Todd and Dan Tritle from WCAI; Richard Delaney, Executive Director, Center for Coastal Studies; and Jessie Little Doe Baird, Vice Chairwoman of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Council.
Kathy Tevyaw, Cape Cod National Seashore Interim Superintendent, recently announced that the rehabilitation of the historic Salt Pond Amphitheater is complete. The revitalized outdoor performance space, set against the stunning background of Salt Pond, will make for a memorable celebration of this local sanctuary. The event is made possible by major financial support from Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore, Eastern National, and an anonymous supporter of Lower Cape Outreach Council. Additional funding is being provided by Cape Associates, Inc. and Cape Cod Potato Chips.
