Singalong show tunes don't get much better than the ones from the musical "Oklahoma!" by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein. They're especially tasty when accompanied by a spread of homemade food.
The two will be paired at Camerata California's special celebration of "Oklahoma!" at 4 p.m. Sept. 18, 5412 Gibbons Drive, Carmichael. Guests can sing from a stage or from their seats, or simply sit quietly and enjoy the tunes. If you come dressed in Western attire, you might win the best-costume prize.
Now for the Chuckwagon Feast part: On the menu will be appetizers, barbecued tri-tip and chicken, au gratin potatoes, cowboy beans, apple-ginger coleslaw, cornbread and peach cobbler. Plus sarsaparilla, beer and wine.
The special fund-raiser marks the new season for Sacramento's chamber choir (www.cameratacalifornia.net). Proceeds will help fund California Camerata's "Emerging Young Artist Scholarship Program."
Tickets are $50; for more information and to make reservations: (916) 483-1386.
