The state capitol building in Sacramento has welcomed festive music for the holidays since opening in December of 1869.

Midday on Sunday, Dec. 21, it was the turn of the West Sacramento Community Singers to perform on the capitol rotunda. They sang under the direction of Dr. Charles Vail. The group has been practicing for its holiday concerts since September at the First Christian Church in Sacramento.

NEWS-LEDGER ONLINE – SEPT 4, 2014 —

EDITOR’S UPDATE: We held the below-mentioned ticket contest on Sept. 11. Congratulations to winners Brianne Harris and Armando Gallegos! Thanks for playing!

The Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus is coming to Sacramento next week, and the News-Ledger will be giving away some free tickets to the show.

Here’s the deal:

There will be two winners. Each winner will receive four tickets. The tickets are for reserve seats on the lower level for the performance at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 13, at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento (we understand there is stuff to see before showtime, if you can arrive early).

Each ticket is valued at $25, so each winning package of four tickets is worth $100.

So how do you win?  Well, you’ll have to be both diligent and fast.

We’ll announce the opening of the contest on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/TheNewsLedger sometime between September 8 and September 12.

When we announce the opening of the contest, the first two people to phone us and ask us for the tickets will each win a package of four tickets.  There’s no entry fee and nothing to send in.  You just have to be one of the first two people to call us at (916) 371-8030 after we start the contest.  Be forewarned: past experience tells us the tickets will go fast — within just a few minutes!

The winner must provide his/her real name, and must make an appointment to pick up the tickets at our West Sacramento office during business hours within a day or so (they will need to bring ID with the same name).  If you can’t swing by our office during our “open” hours within a day or so of winning, then this contest may not be for you.

The winners’ names will be published here, on Facebook, and in the News-Ledger.

Interested?

Keep an eye on our Facebook page starting Monday, and put us on speed dial!
