As Jon Arterton, conductor of the Outer Cape Chorale, puts it, "There's nothing that says Christmas like a Sondheim musical about making meat pies out of people."

At a time when it seems everyone else is programming Christmas music, the Outer Cape Chorale presents "SONDHEIM! Classic songs by America's leading living composer of music for the theater"in Provincetown and Orleans.
"We normally do larger, classical works, and every two years or so we do a program that's more popular," Arterton said.
...
Arterton is hoping people will come out for Sondheim the same way.
"It's intricate music," Arterton says of Sondheim.

Testimonials from participants in Jon's Vocal Workshops
"Working with Jon is more than just singing.
...
I both crave and resist the intimacy of small workshops, but what brings me back is the respect Jon shows each individual, whatever their level of ability.
...
Jon is a charismatic and gifted teacher, and the workshops strike the perfect balance between group learning and individual coaching. The atmosphere is one of safety and camaraderie, as Jon uses a variety of vocal exercises and educational techniques to break down the defensive walls of even the most self-conscious singers. And Jon's ability to identify each participant's unique vocal strengths and challenges is a rare gift that inspires a true metamorphosis in each singer throughout the course of the workshop. Whether a beginner or an experienced performer, no one leaves a Jon Arterton vocal workshop without feeling personally and musically enriched. - Kristen Utt
"Jon Arterton's singing workshop was a remarkable experience.
...
Most importantly for me, Jon is a "Safe Person". If you are considering an Outward Bound adventure into one of the most vulnerable and important parts of yourself, an experience where the armor falls off; you simply couldn't ask for a better guide. He brought me out of terror and made it fun.
...
Jon possesses a rare spirit and a tremendous knowledge of music, which he generously offers up to us lucky souls. - Shoshana Silberman
...
"Jon Arterton is a born teacher. He has the ability, will, and desire to affirm and gently guide all members of the workshop as they discover their "inner Caruso," and explore their natural singing talent, individually and in a group. No embarrassment, no pressure; just a really good time learning about oneself in a very supportive context. I really enjoyed my time at the workshop. Jon also has a way of attracting really cool people to his sessions, so you will meet a very special group of people, of which you will be one!
