The event will open with songs by Francie Dillon, now a CSUS Professor, and the Woodwind Quintet from the Sacramento Philharmonic performing “Carnival of the Animals” by Saint-Saens. Other performers include a Wax Museum of Living History by Creative Connections Academy middle school students, “Blues in the Schools,” and Songs of the Western Soil by local musicians Horse Sense.
