Join the Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra in concert as we present an afternoon of string quartets and readings of Cape Cod Legends and Lore! A unique fusion of chamber music and live storytelling, with the music of Beethoven, Bartok, Schubert, Dvorak, and more! Conductor Matt Scinto will give a pre-concert talk at 2:15 discussing the musical selections and the various stories of Cape lore that will be shared.

The Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra (CCCO) was founded with the goal of providing Cape Cod with high caliber classical music that emphasizes community building, collaboration, and inclusion. The ensemble supports the local creative community by commissioning new music, collaborating with artists across mediums, and performing music from the classical canon.

Eventide Theatre Presents - "An Iliad" Starring Kevin Quill
Aug

to Aug 24

Eventide Theatre Presents - "An Iliad" Starring Kevin Quill

Kevin brings to the stage his acclaimed interpretation of this modern day Homeric-classic.  Retold as a timeless tale of epic poetry, The Cape Cod Times called Quill’s performance “enthralling” and “captivating”.

In “An Illiad”, Kevin Quill brings a very different tale encompassing the passage of time, not in decades, but in centuries.  Kevin is easily recognizable to Cape audiences as well with his boyish good looks and easy charm.  

In this outing, his experience as a veteran performer in his own right shines through and his youthful exuberance is tempered by a gravity that reads well beyond his years.  Quill plays the narrator of the Illiad, though it is never quite clear if he is the Homer of history, or a greater mor omnipresent narrator of life and perspective. Quill has presented “An Illiad” on Cape Cod before…the last time in 2013 to sold out houses and much critical acclaim.

Tickets available on www.eventidearts.org

The Unfinished Work of a Soldier and Artist - The life and work of E. Louis Vuilleumier / Memorial Day Wknd, Great Room Gallery
May
24
to May 27

The Unfinished Work of a Soldier and Artist - The life and work of E. Louis Vuilleumier / Memorial Day Wknd, Great Room Gallery

A four evening tribute to a talented young Massachusetts Artist who never made it back from war. E. Louis Vuilleumier captured the innocence and beauty of coastal and rural Massachusetts in his impressive body of work, from Rockport to Provincetown, the sandy lanes and sleepy ports of the 1920s and 30s are like windows in time to a simple beauty lost forever to war and progress. Oils and Watercolors will be displayed along side his memorabilia as well as many letters home to family describing the sights and sounds of World War 2, He even managed to send a few paintings back that were painted with the few supplies he was able to carry in the field.

E.L.V had just begun his career as an art teacher at the SWAIN school of New Bedford, when he answered the patriotic call and joined the US Army medical corps. As a deeply spiritual and religious person - he vowed he would never take a life, but he enlisted to save others, and to defend the country he loved. Sadly, after surviving the campaign through Africa, he succumbed to Polio in a field hospital in Italy, and never returned to show his work, or go on to the acclaim he would no doubt have achieved as a mature artist. We offer this show over the Memorial Day Weekend to honor all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom, we hope you will be able to join us in paying a tribute to this talented & brave local son.

Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday evening, 4 - 7pm.

OPENING RECEPTION SAT MAY 25, 5 - 8 pm, *FREE - click BUY TICKETS link below to RSVP
