Cape May County's World Class 2004 Summer Concerts

Cape May Court House - Every summer, musicians from the Philadelphia Orchestra bring world class music to Cape May County, as part of Access to Art's Summer Concert series.

Many of the musicians first started coming to Cape May County years ago, when they were young and relatively unknown.

They've continued the summer tradition, even though their concert tours now take them all over the world.

Concerts start July 10th

This summer's concerts start July l0th with the Philadelphia Orchestra’s Mondrian Ensemble, talented Philadelphia Orchestra musicians, including Assistant concertmaster Michael Ludwig, violist, Anna Marie Ahn Petersen, cellist, John Koen and Aurelia Mika Chang, Steinway artist.

This year the Mondrian Ensemble performs the work of noted composer, Dr. Anthony Holland, whose music has been praised as complex, witty and melodic. Holland’s compositions have been performed live and broadcast across the United State, Europe and Asia. He'll accompany the musicians to Cape May County. The ensemble will also perform selections from Brahms, Holland and Dvorak at the July 10th concert, 8PM at Our Lady of the Angel’s Church, Garden State Parkway and Mechanic St., in Cape May Court House.

St. Paul Chamber Orchestra Concertmaster

The second concert in the series, Tuesday, July l3th, features the violin of Steven Copes, Concertmaster of St. Paul’s Chamber Orchestra, and Steinway artist, Rieko Aizawa.

“People heard Rieko last year, and they were amazed at her talent. She studied with Mieczslaw Horszowski at Curtis, and Peter Serkin at Juilliard. She is an incredible artist.” said Barbara Beitel, Access to Art Director. They will perform at 8PM at Our Lady of the Angel’s Church, Garden State Parkway and Mechanic St., in Cape May Court House.
