Guest article by Linda Glover– The Capitol Pops Concert Band will wrap up its 23rd season with a free, open to the public holiday concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019, at the Rusch Park Gym, located at 7801 Auburn Blvd., in Citrus Heights.
Under the baton of Director
Judith Steinle, the CPCB will once again play traditional favorites, seasonal
musical hits and carols in its “Holiday Celebration” program.
The performance is sponsored by the Sunrise Recreation and Park District and the City of Citrus Heights. The two-hour concert includes a 20-minute intermission.
Various prizes will be on
display for donation ticket drawings. The public also will have the opportunity
to purchase a variety of colorful poinsettias after the concert concludes. Longtime CPCB supporter Eisley Nursery of
Auburn has donated a large poinsettia plant as a grand prize in support of the band’s
student scholarship fund.
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.
Based in Citrus Heights, the self-supporting, nonprofit community band of about 50 musicians represents a wide cross-section of the Sacramento area. For more information on the Capitol Pops, visit www.capitolpops.org or its Facebook page.
