In the words of Brennen Milton:
Carol Chuang (founder and instructor at the Pacific Institute of Music (www.piom.org) and I was so excited to perform music at CapRadio Garden here in Sacramento. We have worked hard to bring music that we are passionate about and have strived to have a diverse lineup. For the CapRadio Summer Concert Series, most of the music we chose has been written over the past 50 years, even the award winning ‘Victorian Kitchen Garden’, which I had the opportunity to play at Carnegie. Lobby. Thanks for listening, we hope to connect with all kinds of musicians and music lovers through our art and beyond.
