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.
