    & Friends

    Classical Icons: Mozart & Beethoven

    Craig Combs   piano

    Thomas Collum   violin

    Chris Nunn   viola

    Leo Eguchi   cello

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the sparkling king of melody, and a youthful and energetic Ludwig van Beethoven destined to shake up the world of music take center stage in this concert filled with excitement and beauty. Beethoven’s “Gassenhauer” Trio, op. 11, includes his intriguing use of a popular street tune in the final movement. Mozart’s Piano Quartet in G minor K478 is the composition recognized by musicologists as the first major piece written for piano, violin, viola and cello. Mozart and Beethoven are among classical music’s most notable icons, and these two compositions are worthy examples of their genius. It’s a delightful hour of great music.

    John Thomas presents “Music without Borders” concerts that traverse cultures, historic eras and styles. The first of two of these presentations in this season’s concert series features Field’s stylish arrangements of two gospel hymns and a meditative improvisation. The music journey includes compositions by John Williams and Bach, melodies from Bulgaria and Greece, and Jodry’s special performance on the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House of Provincetown’s 1850 Hammond tracker organ. This is music for the spirit.

    This eclectic quartet of Cape Cod vocal artists celebrate dynamic female performers and songwriters spanning the ages. From Bette Midler to Rosemary Clooney, from Alanis Morissette to Billie Holiday, from Joni Mitchell to Ella Fitzgerald, this newly curated performance will take you on a joyous journey of song and storytelling through the visionary perspective of great women in 20th and 21st century music.

  • Baroque & Beyond

    August 22nd

    Baroque & Beyond

    Bach, Mozart, Pärt & Stravinsky

    Frederick Jodry   piano

    Kelly G. Jeppesen   violin

    Jodry curates an exciting concert with violinist Jeppesen that explores an unusual repertoire. Beginning with Bach’s poignant Sonata in C minor, the music duo pivots to Mozart’s beloved E minor Sonata with its dramatic first movement and elegant second movement with variations. Estonian composer Arvo Pärt supplies a moment of reflection in “Spiegel im Spiegel”. Stravinsky’s “Suite Italienne” is a delightful interpretation in the Italian Baroque style with its special elegance. From Baroque to modern, this music spans centuries for a full musical banquet.

    The Hyannis Sound

    Since 1994, this award-winning group of a cappella male collegiate singers from all parts of the United States has presented thousands of concerts during the summer season on Cape Cod and New England. They have been a favorite of the Great Music on Sundays @5 audiences for many years. Last year the pandemic required them to perform mostly online: their social media fanbase increased to more than 700,000, and they garnered acclaim from Alicia Keys, Pentatonix and Glamour Magazine along the way. This year the gentlemen take their performance outside for our concert series. It will be a delight to present this special event to our online audience so more people can experience this charming, talented and fun group and their diverse repertoire of dazzling and moving music arranged by current and former members.

Celebrate life!
