From the Cape Cod National Seashore:

On a perfect summer evening, under a rising near-full moon, our largest audience ever gathered at the edge of Salt Pond for an extraordinary concert featuring the Cape Symphony performing Broadway hits, heart-stirring patriotic tunes, and scores from Hollywood blockbusters filmed in national parks. This is the third year the national seashore has hosted the symphony. This year's event featured the United States Air Force Band. The spectacular free performance was made possible by generous funding from Friends of Cape Cod National Seashore, Eastern National, and the International Fund for Animal Welfare IFAW. Thank you to Cape Symphony, the The United States Air Force Band, and the guest performers for bringing world-class music to the national seashore!
