The Outer Cape Chorale      
and Chamber Singers

to our new director 

Thank you
for everything and farewell to our founder Jon Arterton and his husband James Mack!
Look for Jon's new chorale in St. Petersburg, Florida!


THE OUTER CAPE CHORALE which was founded in February 2002 by Jon Arterton and several friends has grown to a group of 140 enthusiastic singers. In keeping with their philosophy of bringing their joy of singing to as many people as possible, they’ve adopted the somewhat radical policy of making all of their concerts free of admission charges!  They are a non-auditioning chorus of singers who travel to Provincetown from all over Cape Cod to sing. They made their debut to a capacity crowd in Provincetown's Town Hall singing Brahms' Liebeslieder Waltzes. Since then 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, Haydn’s Mass in the Time of War and Creation, John Rutter’s Magnificat, Gabriel Faure’s Requiem, Franz Schubert’s Mass in G, Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace and Dewi Sant, Luigi Cherubini’s Requiem in c minor, Ariel Ramirez’ Misa Criolla, Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms and selections from his Mass.  They have also presented somewhat lighter fare including 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 two immensely popular concert series: songs by the Beatles and a program called Flashback: The Music of Paul Simon, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Laura Nyro and James Taylor.  The Chamber Singers are about twenty members from the larger ensemble. They perform year-round and have performed all over the Outer Cape, including twice opening for The Cape Symphony Orchestra at their annual Pops Concert in Orleans. The Chorale is organized as a 501c3 non-profit organization, and has prospered due to the generous support of their community.  Contributions are always welcome and may be made on Our Supporters page.
