Native American Music, Song and Story Come to Peregrine School
August 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Peregrine School is honored to present the Capital City Powwow and Dance Corps on Saturday, August 13, from 11am to noon. Presented on the outdoor stage at the south campus at 2650 Lillard Drive, the concert will feature traditional Native American drumming, beautiful flute and inspired vocals. The fourth free concert in the Second Saturday Family Concert Series is supported, in part, by a grant from the City of Davis Arts & Cultural Affairs program. There is a suggested $20 donation, but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
The group’s core is four siblings belonging to the Chumash Tribe which are often joined by musicians from other tribes as well as dancers. When not performing, three of the core members Corrina Snow and her two brothers, Joaquin and Benito Rojas, are beloved instructors at Peregrine School. In addition to being a talented multi-instrumentalist, Joaquin Rojas will enhance the concert experience by providing rich thought-provoking, often humorous, narration. Joaquin will also translate the songs which will be presented in various Native American languages.
The gates will open at approximately 10:30am. Seating is limited and will be on a first come, first served basis. For additional information, please contact Peregrine School at (530) 753-5500 and www.peregrineschool.org.
