Tribute to Sports on Deck for
New Season of 'Meet the Music'

Music and sports are often intertwined, right down to the traditional singing break in baseball's seventh-inning stretch.

concert series celebrates this partnership with "Take Me Out to the Concert" at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 7. The free shows will be in the Music Recital Hall in Capistrano Hall on campus.

Meet the Music concerts offer a fun way for children to learn about music. Last year's series "Niam: Portrait of a Gnome" played to packed houses in the fall, inspiring a repeat performance in the spring.

This time out, it's a tribute to sports featuring the CSUS Symphonic Wind Ensemble conducted by Robert Halseth. Professor Lindsay Bartlett will also be featured on bassoon. Numbers will include John Williams' "Olympic Fanfare and Theme," Gwyneth Walker's "Match Point" conducted with a tennis racquet, and Jack Stamp's "Pastime." There will also be a musical tribute to the San Francisco Giants.

A special performance for 700 elementary and middle school music students will be held at 9:30 a.m., Friday, Oct. 6. Fourth- through eighth-graders from six area schools - Leonardo Da Vinci Elementary, Excelsior Elementary, Leroy S. Greene Middle, Phoebe Hearst Elementary, Pioneer Elementary, Magnolia Intermediate, Starr King Middle and Weimar Hills - will be on campus that morning.

More information is available by calling 278-6515. Media assistance is available by calling (916) 278-6156.
