I love music, and I really like when we can help support our local children get a start in celebrating their talents.

This is a free annual concert provided by the Capital City Community Band this coming Sunday. Young, local musicians will show off their individual talents at the Children's Concert. The musical story of "Tubby, The Tuba" will feature Clinton Vondrak on tuba and Michelle Lassaline on piccolo with John Ruby as the narrator.

Clinton and Michelle are both students at Carson High School. I have known Michelle a very long time, and she is amazing to watch. Sarah Irvin, an eighth-grade French horn student at Eagle Valley Middle School will also perform. Don't miss these rising stars within our community.

Also Fremont, Fritsch and Seeliger elementary school choirs will join the band and this year the choirs and band will perform "Back in the Good Old Days."

'Children's Concert'

WHERE: Bob Boldrick Theater in the Carson Community Center, 851 E. William St.

There is also a raffle and auction of more than 100 prizes donate d by local merchants and all the proceeds go back to the community, with yearly donations to St. Teresa of Avila Catholic School student scholarships, the Community Pregnancy Center and the Eagle Valley Children's home, just to name a few.
