Sacramento California’s Music At Noon concert series is designed for local artists, and it is meeting the needs of those who desire beauty and tranquility in the middle of their day. It is also meeting the needs of our local musicians who desire to communicate their art to the community. Since 2002, thousands of music lovers have entered Westminster’s peaceful, Byzantine-Romanesque sanctuary to hear a wide variety of inspiring music. These free Wednesday noon concerts include classics, jazz, pops, silent films with pipe organ accompaniment, Broadway, opera, folk, USAF ensembles, world-music, and more. Artists include pianists, singers, chamber musicians, choirs, organists, string players, brass & woodwind players, guitarists, and more. So bring a friend and a bag lunch and see why M.A.N. is “the biggest kept secret in Midtown.”

Jazz Guitarist Doug Pauly & Friends

The guitar is a wonderful thing. It plays well with others and it can stand alone. Doug’s solo guitar playing is based in the fingerstyle jazz tradition but it has been further refined and tweaked by the requirements of his inventive arrangements of jazz, pop and latin tunes.
