Let’s go
 to the hop! Join the Cape Symphony & Conservatory at the sock hop for our 6th annual Artini Partini celebration fundraiser. This year it’s a flashback to ‘56, the beginning of the Cape Conservatory. Dance the night away to 1950’s music and the great American songbook. Enjoy hearty culinary delights and martini samplers crafted by favorite local restaurants, as they compete for the coveted Most Artistic Martini award! While you rock around the clock, you’re helping the Conservatory continue to offer, improve and expand access to Arts education programs. In the community. For the community. Now, that news alone should put anyone in a party mood.

Au Marchè Français
Jane E. Caputo, Artistic Director

The Cape Conservatory Youth Ballet will present their Spring Performance of Au Marchè Français. 

The Ballet is set in Paris or New Orleans, Montreal or Quebec in an “open air” French market.  Au Marchè Français is a story ballet about a young girl named Lilu.   Lilu arrives penniless and hungry at the market after a very long journey.  At the market, Lilu finds the merchants, Collette (bread), Bridgette (dress maker) and Jeannette (flowers) who are working hard to sell their goods.  Also at the market are a group of friends:  Mimi who is quick to tears, Cici with her head always in a book, Fifi who hopes to be a film star someday,  Gigi,  the sweet dancer and Amilee, a girl who wants only to shop.  But Amilee sees Lilu’s plight and helps her find all she needs. Amilee helps Lilu to become part of the market.  Lilu sees an acrobat and rides a carousel.  She walks a tightrope and joins in a waltz.   Time passes at the market.  One day represents many eras.  Music changes, jazz is born and things evolve. But one thing does not change.   Simple pleasures are the best; a helping hand, a pat on the head, a carousel ride, a shared meal, a sweet flower or just a dance. Good people help one another.
