FanFaire Foundation musicians at Carmel Valley Library on Oct. 27

A program of “Kids Playing for Kids” sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be presented at 1 p.m. in the library’s community room to help celebrate National Arts Month. It will feature pianists Michael Chen, Ursula Hardianto, Clara Truong, and Oksana Germain; violinist Kalvin Hibi; and French hornist Christine Chen playing music of Mozart, J S Bach, Haydn, Elgar, Chopin, Brahms, and Kalus Badelt that ranges from 18th century Baroque to contemporary film music. These talented young musicians, ages 9 to 17, who also love science and math have been nurtured by the Foundation to be role models for children in San Diego. The program is free and will last 60 minutes.

The “Kids Playing for Kids” program was launched in October 2011. It enables musically gifted children to express and share their love of music with other children, further develop their creative skills, and build their self-confidence as performers. Its kids are also encouraged to excel in their studies and to learn the value of community service. The goal is that their passion for music will spark creativity and a sense of community in other young people so they can compete effectively in our science-based society. This is possible because playing music enhances the skills required for learning science and math.

In celebration of the program’s first anniversary, the Foundation has produced a CD of studio performances of classical and jazz pieces by 10 of its more than 30 musicians. It should be released in time for this concert.

The library is located at 3919 Townsgate Drive in Carmel Valley. For further information call (858) 552-1668.
