January’s free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be presented on Wed., Jan. 12, at 7 p.m. in the library’s community room. It will explore the life of Claude Debussy: flower child, impressionist, and revolutionary, with narration by Joanne Regenhardt, vocals by Janelle DeStefano, and piano accompaniment and solos by James Frimmer. They have previously explored the lives of Frederic Chopin and Sergei Rachmaninoff and are now bringing the music and life of Claude Debussy to audiences in the San Diego area.

Joanne Regenhardt began singing in San Diego with the Starlight Opera in 1955. Since then she has sung in oratorios and performed as a soloist with symphony orchestras and in recitals and throughout Southern California. She is now integrating narratives of musician’s lives into programs of their music.

Janelle DeStefano, a mezzo soprano, has had title roles in operas, oratorios, and musical theater across the United States. She has won several vocal competitions, including the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions in San Diego. She is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Musical Arts at the University of Southern California.
