The Concerts of our 66th Season.

Growing Bigger And Better.

The musicians of the Cape Ann Symphony and I are extremely excited about the upcoming 2017-18 Season. We have added a concert in Ipswich in September, and are growing bigger and better because of your generous support and enthusiasm. Our goal is to present to you concerts of the highest artistic standards that are guided by an enthusiasm for learning, a passion for the joy of music and love of good old fashioned fun and humor. Looking forward to seeing you at our concerts!”
