Capitol Pops presents free concert in Folsom

The Capitol Pops Concert Band continues its 17th season with a free, open to the public concert at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 6, at the Folsom Library Gazebo in Folsom City Lions Park, 403 Stafford St. in Folsom.

For this performance, special guest conductor Kurt Pearsall will handle the baton, directing a concert that will include a mix of some of the band’s traditional American favorites, contemporary hits and tunes from the movies and the stage.

Voice and instrumental soloists will be part of the show, which will run until about 8:30 p.m., with a 20-minute intermission.

The concert is sponsored by the Folsom Parks and Recreation Department and kicks off the 2014 Concerts in the Park series.

The CPCB’s 2014 season represents a milestone for director Jerry Lopes, who is in his final season as the band’s full-time director, a position he has held since the band was formed in 1997.

Guest conductor Pearsall, who has been awarded multiple degrees from California State University, Sacramento, has an extensive background as a music educator and performer.

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 region, with educators, business people, industry professionals and retirees in the fold.

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