Join the CCCO in a program featuring the life and story of "Black Sam" Bellamy, who after becoming one of the richest pirates in history, goes down with his crew in 1717 aboard the Whydah during a violent storm off the coast of Wellfleet. Composer Sam Wu premieres a new work depicting this harrowing story.
The CCCO will also perform Sibelius' reaction to Belshazzar's Feast, a selection of music from Jean-Philippe Rameau's ballet and opera works, and Haydn's "Mourning" Symphony.
