Opening the 29th Annual Cape May Music Festival on Sunday, May 27 at 7 p.m. is the 35-piece Atlantic Brass Band, a long time Cape May favorite, under the baton of Salvatore Scarpa. The Atlantic Brass Band returns to the beautiful Rotary Bandstand to present an exciting, toe-tapping all-brass concert of American music, perfect for a Memorial Day weekend celebration. Concert will be held at Cape May Convention Hall in the event of rain. Admission is free.
On Tuesday, May 29 at 8 p.m., The New York Chamber Ensemble presents “Folk & Dance in Chamber Music” with special guest, Oren Fader, guitar in performances of Boccherini’s “Fandango Quintet” for guitar and string quartet; Piazzola’s “Oblivion”; Bartok’s “Roumanian Dances” and “Selected Folk Songs”; and Dvorak’s “American” String Quartet. At the Episcopal Church of the Advent, Washington and Franklin Streets. General admission $20, Seniors $15, Students $5.
Music lovers are invited to the Carriage House Café & Tearoom, Wednesday, May 30 at noon, on the beautiful grounds of the Emlen Physick Estate, 1048 Washington St. for a Bach’s Lunch, a mini-concert by members of the Bay Atlantic Symphony that accompany a delicious Tea Luncheon. Bach’s Lunches offer an intimate, afternoon al fresco musical experience, under the tent. New in 2018! Admission of $30 per person now includes a complimentary wine tasting.
On Thursday, May 31 at 8 p.m., hear the innovative Folk Americana group BAILEN perform at West Cape May’s Willow Creek Winery. BAILEN is comprised of 25-year-old twins Daniel and David Bailen who play and sing three-part harmony with their 19-year-old sister, Julia, and childhood friend, Pierre Piscitelli (the only “non” Bailen in the band). They have performed internationally and have garnered a faithful following within the London and New York City folk scene, as well as on college campuses throughout the Northeast. The three siblings have been writing songs and performing since they can remember, while touring with their parents, who are both professional New York City freelance musicians. Willow Creek Winery, 168 Stevens St., West Cape May. Adults $25; Seniors $20; Students: $10. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for tapas and wine, available for purchase. Advance reservations recommended.
