The 2021 Cape May Music Festival Series features classical, jazz and brass band music. This 32nd annual Cape May Music Festival is made possible by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as the generosity of corporate and individual sponsors.
"We are thrilled to bring back live concerts to the Cape May Music Festival in 2021 after a mostly virtual albeit wonderful concert series in 2020 due to COVID-19," said Cape May MAC Director and CEO Jody Alessandrine. "The series this year has featured the return of renowned classical, brass band and jazz festival favorites to historic Cape May — the New York Chamber Ensemble, the Bay Atlantic Symphony, the Atlantic Brass Band and Paula Johns — performing outdoors at the 1879 Emlen Physick Estate and Cape May's Rotary Bandstand. Both locations are beautiful venues that are ideal to enjoy a late spring or early summer musical evening."
Paula Johns returns in 2021 in the final concert of the series for a jazz concert titled “The Real Me” presented on the outdoor stage at the Emlen Physick Estate, 1048 Washington St., on Sunday, June 27 at 7:00pm. Rain date is June 28 at 7:00pm. Admission is $25 adults, $20 seniors and $15 students.
