Capitol Pops presents Fourth concert

The Capitol Pops Concert Band continues its 17th season with a free public concert at 11 a.m. Friday, July 4 at Royer Park, 190 Park Drive, in Roseville. The outdoor, patriotic performance is part of a full day of red, white and blue festivities in the park just north of Douglas Boulevard.

Under the baton of director Jerry Lopes, CPCB’s July 4th in the Park performance will include a mix of some of the band’s traditional American popular standards and familiar patriotic selections celebrating the nation’s 238th birthday.

The concert also will include music recognizing service veterans and branches of the U.S. military. Voice and instrumental soloists will be part of the show, which will run until about 1 p.m., with a 20-minute intermission.

The CPCB’s performance is part of Roseville’s 2014 Music in the Park series presented by the Performing Arts of Roseville.

The band’s performance represents a milestone for Lopes, who is in his final season as the CPCB’s full-time director, a position he has held since the band was formed in 1997.

The Capitol Pops Concert Band annually performs a diverse portfolio of high-quality, well-prepared music heard by thousands of concert-goers throughout Northern California. It plays at more than a dozen Sacramento-region venues annually.

The band’s musical repertoire includes music from Broadway shows, movies, marches, patriotic, vocal and instrumental solos, and popular music from several eras.

Most concerts are free and open to the public.

The self-supporting, nonprofit CPCB is made up of about 65 volunteer musicians, ranging from college-age students to nonagenarians. Musicians and vocalists represent a wide cross-section of the Sacramento area, with educators, business people, industry professionals and retirees in the fold.

CPCB’s scholarship fund supports the education of student musicians.
