Sacramento Philharmonic & Opera to Perform Home Opener Halftime

Golden 1 Center is more than just an arena. It is also Sacramento’s newest hub for local art and music that embody the city’s culture and diversity.

As part of the team's home opener on Thursday, the Kings will welcome the Sacramento Philharmonic & Opera for a special halftime performance at Golden 1 Center. Julian Dixon, senior director of operations and community partnerships for the company, expressed the orchestra's enthusiasm for the evening's festivities.

“Our musicians are very excited for this opportunity to introduce our music to new ears and faces,” Dixon said. “We pride ourselves in our role to use orchestral and opera music to serve Sacramento and transform our area to fully represent the capital of California.”

The Sacramento Philharmonic and Opera seeks to inspire, lead artistic growth, provide support to musical education and engage Sacramento in celebrating diversity. From classical and opera to The Beatles and David Bowie, the group performs a wide variety of genres for packed audiences at the Sacramento Community Center Theater.
This performance further represents the organization’s ties to the community by embracing local musicians and culture here in Sacramento.

“We’re another team here in the heart of the city who exemplifies the values of effort, teamwork and highly-trained individuals just like the Kings," Dixon added.
