Capital Pops to hold free concert Sept. 14

The Capitol Pops Concert Band continues its 16th season with a free, open to the public concert at 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013, in Sacramento’s Jane Steele Park. The concert is presented by the Arcade Creek Recreation and Park District.

Under the baton of Director Jerry Lopes, CPCB’s performance will include a mix of some of the band’s traditional American favorites, contemporary hits and tunes from the movies and the stage. Lopes has added some fresh arrangements to the band’s 2013 program offerings. The second half of the band’s “Let Freedom Ring!” concert includes a selection of decidedly patriotic tunes.

Voice and instrumental soloists will be part of the show, which will run until around 8 p.m., including a brief intermission.

Started in 1997, the Capitol Pops Concert Band has performed a diverse portfolio of high-quality, well-prepared music heard by thousands of concert-goers throughout Northern California. Musicians in the Capitol Pops Concert Band span a wide range of ages, from students to nonagenarians. Based in Fair Oaks, the self-supporting, nonprofit band of about 75 musicians represents a wide cross-section of the Sacramento area.

Jane Steele Park is located at 4855 Hamilton Street in Sacramento, just south of the Madison Avenue exit off Interstate 80. Concert-goers can bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy a late-summer evening of music. Light refreshments will be available to purchase in the picturesque park setting.
