Holiday music program brightens State Capitol Museum

Get ready for some holiday fun on your next visit to the California State Capitol Museum, 10th Street between L and N streets, Sacramento, in the First Floor Rotunda.

To set a festive stage and spread holiday cheer, beautiful vintage decorations create a lovely backdrop for a variety of diverse and amazing live holiday musical performances in the Capitol Rotunda each day. The performances are free.

Visitors will enjoy live musical entertainment that includes a Salvation Army brass quintet, a Cal-Trans choir (made up of a spirited group of state workers), trombone jazz, world and baroque music, bell-ringers, a harp circle, youth violinists, a number of talented school choirs and many more.

This special holiday experience is made possible by the State Capitol Museum and California State Parks in association with the California State Legislature Joint Rules Committee, the Governor’s Office and the Department of General Services who have worked collaboratively to preserve holiday traditions inside the Capitol.
