This concert is in part a benefit for the Alzheimer's Family Support Center of Cape Cod.

The CCCO 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. Johann Christian Bach (the son of famed Johann Sebastian Bach) was best known as the "London" Bach, as he reached much success as a composer in England. The CCCO will perform his Sinfonia in G minor.

Grace Williams 1944 Sea Sketches depicts life out on the ocean, and then prepare to be serenaded by Sir Edward Elgar himself.
