    The Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra takes a trip over seas with more beautiful English music for strings. Ralph Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis was inspired by this English Renaissance composer, creating a work featuring many of our musicians from the orchestra. Antonio Vivaldi, famous composer of the Four Seasons also gained much recognition from his concerti "L'estro armonico" (The Harmonic Inspiration); we will perform his passioned Concerto Grosso in G minor. Welsh composer Grace Williams, a student of Vaughan Williams, composed her "Sea Sketches" in 1944, comprising of five movements depicting various moods of the sea for string orchestra. And of course, be prepared to be serenaded by Sir Edward Elgar himself.

    Concert will benefit the Alzheimer's Family Support Center.
