Free concerts highlight workshop

Sacramento State will offer a series of free concerts this summer featuring participants in the ChicoSac Chamber Music Workshop. These concerts will be held at 4 and 6:30 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3 p.m. Wednesdays, and 4 p.m. Fridays, July 25 to 29 and July 31 to August 4 in room 151 of Capistrano Hall.

Approximately six dozen students and several local amateurs will rehearse in groups each day as part of the workshop program and perform in different groups each show. Ensembles will be comprised of wind, string and piano performers and will range from teens to seniors. The two one-week workshops will be coached by some of Northern California's most prominent chamber musicians, along with several members of the Sacramento State faculty.

This is the third year the musical workshop has been held at Sacramento State campus since moving from CSU Chico in 2003.
