CapRadio to host Student Musician Showcase Sept. 24-28

The Sacramento region boasts some of the finest music education programs in the country.  Many of our local high schools turn out national award-winning groups and soloists year after year.  During the week of September 24th, we’ll be spotlighting some of these outstanding young classical and jazz musicians from Folsom High School, Rio Americano High School, Davis High School and the Sacramento Youth Symphony, who will perform live in the CapRadio studios. Each day during our Student Musician Showcase Week we’ll get to know some of  these talented youngsters and discover why they’re drawn to the music they play.  Mark your calendar and be sure to tune in starting on September 24th.

  • Monday, Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. – Jazz Trio from Rio Americano High
  • Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 11 a.m. – Classical Piano Trio from Davis High
  • Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 8 p.m. – Jazz Quintet from Folsom High
  • Thursday, Sept. 27 at 3 p.m. – Classical String Quartet from the Sacramento Youth Symphony

CapRadio on-air hosts Kevin Doherty, Beth Ruyak, Victor Forman, Gary Vercelli and Devan Kortan will interview the student musicians, in between performances.

We will also be hosting segments featuring guests involved with music education and outreach including Julian Dixon, Senior Director, Community Engagement & Education at Sacramento Philharmonic & Opera and Ruth Rosenberg, Director of Arts Education and Artist Engagement at Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, UC Davis

Full disclosure:  The Student Music Showcase takes place during CapRadio Music’s Fall Fund Drive… which is absolutely appropriate!  We’re raising funds to make classical music and jazz available and accessible to all, young and old, on the radio, online, and throughout the community as we support live performance and music education.  Join us!
