cape cod symphony

Cape Cod is full of fantastic beaches and historic sites, but one Cape attraction truly presents a great night out. The Cape Cod Symphony traces its roots back more than a half-century, now maintaining its role as one of the largest symphonies of its kind in the entire state of Massachusetts.

Around 75 musicians and soloists make up the symphony, which also brings in some guest artists. Past artists have included the Vienna Boys Choir and renowned cellist and prodigy Yo-Yo Ma.

Generally the artists take the stage at the Barnstable Performing Arts Center in Hyannis. The center is found within the campus of Barnstable High School. Upcoming productions include Haydn to Brahms later this month and a tribute to some of the most popular Broadway shows and songs
