Celebration of talent benefits students

In a celebration of talent to benefit its student scholarship fund, the music department at California State University, Sacramento presents a free concert at 8 p.m. on Monday, March 15 in Capistrano Hall's Music Recital Hall.

The gala even features instrumental works from the CSUS Clarinet Choir, Percussion Group and Liberace Woodwind Quintet. Performances of solo instrumental works by Sir Edward William Elgar, Andrew Carter and William Grant Still will also be included, as well as works by CSUS composers. In addition, the CSUS Opera Theater performs selected excerpts from their upcoming production of Mozart's "The Magic Flute."

Although the event is free, donations to the department's student scholarship fund are encouraged. Donations are accepted at the door or by mail. All proceeds go directly to the CSUS Music Student Scholarship Fund.
