Shoppers at the KP International Market in Rancho Cordova were treated to a feast for the ears on Saturday when the 50-piece Rancho Cordova Civic Light Orchestra gave a free concert in the Plaza’s food court.
CapRadio was there to record some of the music and find out from Artistic Director Pete Nowlen why the group, which has appeared there twice before, keeps coming back to the unconventional venue.
The two-hour concert featured the Merry Wives of Windsor Overture, Symphonic Dances from Fiddler on the Roof, Bizet’s Carmen Suites One & Two, and Polka, Furiant and Dance of the Comedians from The Bartered Bride (Smetana).
It also included soloist Ray Anthony Trujillo performing the 3rd movement of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto.
