Jul. 14, 2011 –
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission invites the public to attend a free outdoor concert as part of the Waikiki Beach concert series at Cape Disappointment State Park in Ilwaco.
Internationally acclaimed violinist, Kim Angelis, plays a special concert 7 p.m. July 23, in the Confluence Project amphitheater at Cape Disappointment State Park, 244 Robert Gray Drive, Ilwaco. The performance is part of the summer-long Waikiki Beach concert series, featuring a variety of folk and Americana artists. The Discover Pass is required to attend these concerts.
A violin virtuoso and composer, Kim Angelis is known internationally for her gypsy-style music and performs with her husband, Josef Gault, on guitar and their Collie, “Paco.”
Additional concerts of the Waikiki Beach series are scheduled at 7 p.m. in the Confluence Project amphitheater:
• Aug. 13: Beltaine, a Pacific Northwest Celtic music trio
• Aug. 27: Lincoln’s Beard, a trio featuring quirky backwoods gospel and jaunty pop music
This year marks the sixth season of the Waikiki Beach concert series at Cape Disappointment State Park. The outdoor music series is presented with support by the Friends of the Columbia River Gateway, a non-profit organization that also operates the bookstores at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and the Carriage House Gift Shop at the North Head Lighthouse at Cape Disappointment State Park.
Cape Disappointment State Park is a 1,882-acre camping park on the Long Beach Peninsula, fronted by the Pacific Ocean. The park offers two miles of ocean beach, two lighthouses, an interpretive center and hiking trails. The Confluence Project amphitheater was designed by world-renowned architect and artist, Maya Lin, as part of a larger art installation at the park.
The Commission manages a diverse system of more than 100 state parks and recreation programs, including long-distance trails, boating safety and winter recreation. The 98-year-old park system will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2013.
