Article submitted by Linda Glover– The Capitol Pops Concert Band will celebrate its 22nd anniversary with a free, open to the public concert at 7 p.m. this Saturday, April 27, in the Rusch Park Auditorium.
Under the baton of Director Judith Steinle, the CPCB will perform a fresh program of pops tunes reflecting the band’s “Take Me Away” theme — a musical journey designed to please a wide variety of listener tastes. The two-hour concert includes a 20-minute intermission.
This performance is co-sponsored by the Sunrise Recreation & Park District and the City of Citrus Heights.
Longtime band supporter Eisley Nursery in Auburn will provide a special rosebush for the band’s student scholarship raffle. Other raffle prizes will be available to attendees making voluntary donations. Spring flowers grown by Eisley Nursery will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the concert.
Started in 1997, the CPCB has performed a diverse portfolio of high-quality, well-prepared music heard by thousands of concert-goers throughout Northern California. The Citrus Heights-based, self-supporting, nonprofit community band of about 50 musicians represents a wide cross-section of the Sacramento area.
The Rusch Park Auditorium is located at 7801 Auburn Blvd., in Citrus Heights. More information can be found on the band’s Facebook page or at www.capitolpops.org.
