CCCO: Haydn the Pirate


Sun. October 20th, 2019 | 3 PM
Pilgrim Congregational Church, Harwich Port

Join the CCCO in a program featuring the life and story of "Black Sam" Bellamy, who after becoming one of the richest pirates in history, goes down with his crew in 1717 aboard the Whydah during a violent storm off the coast of Wellfleet. Composer-in-Residence Cody Forrest joins us for his first commission of the season depicting this harrowing story.

Our famous fugitive will be met by the Military Symphony of Haydn, a work complete with a handful of percussion, trumpet calls, and absolute joy. The CCCO will also perform Sibelius' reaction to Belshazzar's Feast, and a selection of music from Jean-Philippe Rameau's ballet and opera works.
