December 14, 7 PM                10 Things You Didn't Know about the Political Media       

The Falmouth Academy Community Series will present a talk by Rosie Gray, staff reporter for The Atlantic and a member of the White House press corps, Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at Falmouth Academy.

A 2008 alumna of Falmouth Academy, Rosie, whose father is novelist Peter Abrahams, will speak about being a Washington journalist in today’s political environment in her talk entitled, “10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Political Media.”

While attending New York University, Rosie interned for the Village Voice. She was subsequently hired as a weekend writer and then a staff reporter. Her first big story was reporting on the Occupy movement in New York City. Rosie left The Voice for BuzzFeed, an online publication, where she covered politics and two presidential campaigns as well as foreign affairs.

She was hired by The Atlantic in 2017 to report on global affairs and U.S. politics and was assigned to the White House press corps only three months into her tenure.

Rosie is currently working on a book about Breitbart News for Harper Collins.

Admission is free. Seating is limited, please register below.

April 3, 7 PM           

A View from the Conductor's Podium: A Look at the Future of Performing Arts                               

The Falmouth Academy Community Series will present a talk by Jung-Ho Pak,  the Artistic Director & Conductor of the Cape Symphony Orchestra, Tuesday, April 3 at 7:00 PM. 

Described by the New York Times as a conductor who “radiates enthusiasm” and the Los Angeles Times as “a real grabber,” Jung-Ho Pak has led orchestras throughout our country and around the world, presenting a unique way to fall in love with the symphonic experience.

Celebrating ten years with the Cape Symphony, Jung-Ho admits that one of his most “audacious” goals is to reach every single person on Cape Cod with the gift of beautiful music. Perhaps that’s why he’s been so committed to our education programs (Music Works! Everyday, Music Memory, and the Cape Youth Orchestra among others) since joining us in 2007.

He loves the “warm and enthusiastic” audiences here and says, “The Cape Symphony is truly a unique experience, even among other orchestras. We value joy and innovation, and you see it and feel it in our performances. When I conduct here, I’m seeing a community come together and share love.” For the Masterpiece Series, Jung-Ho presents the great classical works in unexpected and dramatic ways, and brings his sense of fun to the Pops Series concerts.
