Provincetown Jazz Festival and Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival are two of many live music traditions that take place in our region every summer. On The Point, we talk with Bart Weisman, founder of the Provincetown Jazz Festival, and hear samples of the vocalists and musicians performing at this year’s festival. Next we talk with the new executive director of the Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival Paul Schwendener, along with outgoing executive director Elaine Lipton, who join us to talk about the four decades long festival, how they’re engaging younger and more diverse audiences, and hear cuts from some of the featured works. Mindy Todd hosts.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
