Live music will fill the grounds of the Governor’s Mansion in Carson City at 4:30 p.m. June 11.

Carson City Symphony’s 33rd Annual Pops Party concert will be held on the back lawn of the mansion.

The program features the Carson City Symphony, Carson City Symphony Chorus, and guest singer CeCe Gable.

Grounds open with pre-concert entertainment by the Triple Treble flutes (Nancy Irwin, Jane Dykstra, and Betsy Garfinkle) at 3:30 p.m.

The symphony, directed by David Bugli, and the chorus, directed by Michael Langham, will perform pops music, music from musicals, films, and marches. They’ll join together for music from “Oklahoma!” and “The Lion King.”

Gable, a jazz cabaret performer and recording artist, has sung in jazz clubs throughout the United States and Europe. She will sing arrangements of “Midnight Sun” and “Little Girl Blue” with the orchestra.

Seating is on the lawn; bring blankets or lawn chairs (some chairs will be provided) and food. Snacks, beverages, and raffle tickets will be on sale.

Proceeds benefit the Capital City Arts Initiative’s artistic and educational programs.

The free concert is supported, in part, with public funding through the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
