FAIR OAKS, CA (MPG) - The Capitol Pops Concert Band will celebrate America's 243rd birthday and continue its 23nd season with a pair of free and open to the public, family-friendly concerts during Independence Day week.

The band will get things going with a spirited "Celebrate America" concert from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday, June 30, 2019, at Fair Oaks Village Park, 4238 Main St., in Fair Oaks.

On Thursday, July 4, 2019, the Capitol Pops once again will perform its outdoor Fourth of July concert, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Royer Park, 190 Park Drive, in Roseville. The band's annual performance is part of a full day of red, white and blue festivities, including a morning parade in Roseville. This concert is sponsored by Performing Arts of Roseville as part of its 2019 Roseville Music in the Park series.

Under the baton of Director Judith Steinle, both Capitol Pops concerts will include a mix of fresh pops tunes, some of the band’s traditional American popular standards and familiar patriotic selections celebrating the nation's founding in 1776. The concerts also will include music recognizing service veterans and branches of the U.S. military. Both shows will include intermissions of about 15 minutes.

Concert-goers are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs and refreshments to enjoy the performances on the grounds of both venues. Various vendors will be at both sites.

Started in 1997, the Capitol Pops Concert Band 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.
