The Outer Cape Chorale, Provincetown Massachusetts

 Outer Cape Chorale
The Outer Cape Chorale was founded in 2002 by its conductor Jon Arterton. The Cape Cod Chorale has grown to a group of over 140 chorus based in Provincetown, Massachusetts. They are a community chorus of which no member auditions. The members simply must have one thing in common, the love of music. They even take their soloist from the chorus itself. Within the chorus you will find those who have been singing all their lives, singers who haven't sung a note since grammar school and trained vocalists. Some teach music, and some have never looked at a page of sheet music ... and yet they all come together and somehow make magic.

They will be performing 
The Music of Karl Jenkins 
in the newly restored Provincetown Town Hall 
on December 9th and 10th at 7pm
This is now and always has been a free event.. 
A goodwill offering will be taken. 

They made their debut to a capacity crowd in Provincetown’s Town Hall singing Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzes. Since then they have presented a program of American music called Mostly Gershwin, a concert version of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Iolanthe, a concert of songs from around the world, a concert of Great Opera Choruses, a concert of music from Broadway, and an immensely popular concert of music by the Beatles. They’ve also performed a wide variety of classical works including Mozart’s Requiem and Vesperae Solennes de Confessore, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, Bach’s Cantata 4, Part One of Haydn’s Creation and Mass in the Time of War, John Rutter’s Magnificent, Gabriel Faure’s Requiem, Franz Schubert’s Mass in G, Karl Jenkins’s The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace, Ariel Ramirez’s Misa Criolla, and Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms. They have twice opened for The Cape Symphony Orchestra at their annual Pops Concert in Orleans

Jon Arterton began his musical journey as a choirboy at Washington's National Cathedral. Jon holds a Master's Degree from The New England Conservatory of Music where he also served as Assistant Conductor of Choruses.

Guests staying at Gabriel's Guesthouse in Provincetown the evening of December 10th will enjoy a wonderful wine and cheese hour before the concert! 

See you then!
