The month of May on Cape Cod is a time of joy: of riotously-colored shrubs and flowers, lengthening days and moderate temperatures. In 2017, May on Cape Cod will also provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience: the celebration of the 100th birthday of a favorite son, President John F. Kennedy, late of Hyannisport.

On Sunday, May 28, the Cape Symphony and the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum will collaborate in a centennial commemoration concert at 5 p.m. in the Barnstable Performing Arts Center at Barnstable High School on West Main Street.

“It was on my bucket list” to learn about JFK and the Cape, said Jung-Ho Pak, artistic director and conductor of the symphony, who grew up on the West Coast. What he knew of the Cape, living at that 3,000-mile distance, was “potato chips and the Kennedys.”
