Music Festival in Cape May

Music Festival

There are many different concerts that are part of the Cape May Music Festival; classical, popular, folk, and jazz. I’m going to describe just one Music Festivalof them. Tuesday, May 29, the New York Chamber Ensemble will be performing at the Church of the Advent. Their concert will include a fandango by Boccherini. He was an Italian who lived and worked at the royal court in Madrid – we used a piece of his for the recessional for our wedding. The concert will also include Bela Bartok’s Roumanian Dances, (My father was Bessarabian – so Roumanian Dances are very familiar.) as well as Dvorak’s “American” string quartet. Everything in this concert is fun and lively. I don’t know lot about classical music and I find this kind very entertaining. Imagine your day in Cape May including dinner at one of the many spectacular restaurants, a stint at the beach, and this wonderful concert.

 

Music FestivalThis is the most melodic and easy to listen to classical music ever written. If you hear it, you’ll love it. Come to Leith Hall for a visit and enjoy some of what Cape May has to offer.
