Hyannis, MA - Each year the Cape Symphony & Conservatory collaborate to present an exclusive concert for elementary students from across Cape Cod. This year, 20 schools and four special-needs centers participated in one of two Young People Concerts on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019, at the Barnstable Performing Arts Center. Led by Artistic Director & Conductor, Jung-Ho Pak, the concerts featured narration by Jeffrey Clonts and original dance choreography by ballet Artistic Director Jane Caputo, whose students danced to Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf.

The Young People’s Concert enables students in grades K-4 to have a positive and memorable experience attending a live concert and this year, students learned that art can be both created and experienced. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
