On Saturday, May 18 we had the pleasure of hearing the Capital Pops Concert Band at the Cameron Park Community Center. Besides the big band sound there were vocal and instrumental solos that were outstanding. The band consists of 65 volunteers who really enjoy playing and it shows.
While the show was great, the attendance for this quality performance was not. Capital Pops plays at many parks and charitable organizations in the Sacramento area throughout the year. Many events are free and some are to raise funds to support an organization — such as the Cameron Park Community Center. The entertainment value of these performers cannot be beat by any group I am familiar with in our area.
I understand they are coming back to the Cameron Park Community Center on Nov. 16, 2013. I hope many in El Dorado County area will set that date aside for a real treat for yourselves, and to support the activities in the Cameron Park community.
