Each spring, MAC presents the Cape May Music Festival, a four-week music series featuring the residency of the New York Chamber Ensemble and the Bay-Atlantic Symphony. During the school year, MAC also presents an educational outreach program in conjunction with the Festival. The project is "Song to Symphony" with composer Eliot Bailen. Each year, Mr. Bailen chooses a topic/story and visits classrooms to write songs with students to relate the story in music. The story this year is based on the Brothers Grimm and the two hundredth anniversary of the publication of their famous fairy tales. The project will culminate in the Fall at the Lower Cape May Regional High School Paul Schmidtchen Auditorium in a concert featuring a staged production of the story and the songs written and performed for student audiences by students. Admission to this concert is free but seats must be reserved.
