Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra Holiday Concert to Support Alzheimer’s Care
HARWICH – The Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra, the region’s newest professional orchestra, will present a holiday season benefit concert “A Mostly English Holiday,” next month at the Pilgrim Congregational Church.
Proceeds from the performance will benefit in part the Alzheimer’s Family Support Center of Cape Cod.
The orchestra will take a musical trip overseas with beautiful English music for strings.
“I’ve always found English music for strings to be filled with nostalgia, warmth, and hope, feelings that I find fitting for a holiday season,” Founding Artistic Director and Conductor Matthew Scinto said.
Highlights include Williams’ Sea Sketches, exploring the familiar moods of the sea through a little-known Welsh composer.
Fantasia on a Theme combines the spirit of two composers who remarkably lived nearly 400 years apart, famous English Renaissance composer Thomas Tallis and Vaughan Williams, a prolific composer who found his voice at the turn of the 20th century.”
The Alzheimer’s Family Support Center is a non-profit organization serving families dealing with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases throughout Cape Cod.
The organization’s mission is to identify and provide free personalized care planning and pragmatic counseling to the 10,000 families, individuals, and caregivers on Cape Cod living with Alzheimer’s and other dementia related illnesses.
The group helps to navigate the complexities and the challenges they face across the span of these diseases, while providing a research based family and community centered model.
Services include counseling, personalize care planning, community education, support groups, events and activities, information resources, referrals, outreach, dementia training, and family and community centered care.
“We are quite proud to offer this concert to benefit the Alzheimer’s Family Support Center,” said Scinto.
“This volunteer organization is providing free and necessary services to caregivers on Cape Cod, and deserves the support of our entire community.”
“A Mostly English Holiday,” is set to take place Sunday, December 15th at 3 p.m. at the Pilgrim Congregational Church which is located at, 533 Main Street, Rt. 28, Harwich Port.
A pre-concert talk by Scinto will be held at 2:15 p.m.
