Saturday Club celebrates CSUS and more
than 100 years of melodies on Sunday

One-hundred-and-nine years ago a group of musicians came together to form the Sacramento Saturday Club Concert to provide the community access to world-class performances and scholarships to local college students. This year, the club is performing a free concert to honor the many contributions made by California State University, Sacramento's professors to the organization.

The concert is at 3 p.m., Jan. 20 in the Music Recital Hall in Capistrano Hall. The concert features Wallace Rushkin, Susan Lamb Cook, Rejean Anderson and Margaret Rushkin performing David Popper's requiem for cello and piano; Linda Adam performing four songs by Gabriel Foure; Barbara Wieman performing works by Debussy, Chopin and Bllade; and soprano Miriam Bonchato accompanied by Marion O'Leary.

"Over the years, the CSUS professors have really helped run the club, providing talent and helping raise funds for the many scholarships we provide. This is a memorial to those professors," says Wallace Rushkin, club president and former CSUS cello professor.

For more information about the concert call Ruskin at (916) 632-7170.
