Cape May Music Festival

This year's Cape May Music Festival in New Jersey features an eclectic mix of sounds. From chamber and orchestral music to world and pop music, the 17th annual festival will satisfy most musical tastes. The four-week festival, running through June 18 at several venues in Cape May, is presented by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts.

Visitors can hear classical music from the Bay-Atlantic Symphony, the New Jersey Symphony Chamber Players and the New York Chamber Ensemble. Or they can catch Yiddish music from Metropolitan Klezmer. The Pablo Zeigler Trio will also perform a concert of classic tango with jazz, the Atlantic Brass Band performs a show of American music and the Denis DiBlasio Quartet with the Herb Moore Trio plays a concert of jazz music. Wrapping up the festival will be the Bay-Atlantic Symphony featuring violinist Hilary Hahn in a concert of classical works.

In addition to the concerts, the festival will include "Bach's Lunches," which feature a mini-concert and tea luncheon at the Emlen Physick Estate, 1048 Washington St., as well as "Dinner With the Maestro" with a three-course dinner with conductor Jed Gaylin at the Mad Batter Restaurant, Jackson Street.

Concerts take place Saturdays, Sundays and Tuesdays at the Cape May Convention Hall, Beach Drive at Stockton Place; Episcopal Church of the Advent, Washington and Franklin streets; and the Cape May Regional High School Auditorium, 687 Route 9.
