The Capitol Pops Concert Band continues its 22nd season with a free, open to the public holiday concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, at the Rusch Park Gym, 7801 Auburn Blvd., in Citrus Heights.
Under the baton of Director Judith Steinle, CPCB will once again play traditional holiday favorites, seasonal musical hits and carols.
This performance, sponsored by the Sunrise Recreation and Park District and the City of Citrus Heights, is family friendly and a great way to usher in the holiday season. The two-hour concert includes a 20-minute intermission.
Various prizes will be on display for the raffle ticket drawings. In addition, there will be a silent auction on special, one-of-a kind items. 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.
