The life and music of Robert Schumann at the Carmel Valley Library on Jan. 9

January’s free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be presented on Wednesday, Jan. 9, at 7 p.m. in the library’s community room. It will explore the life and music of Robert Schumann (1810 – 1856), one of the greatest German romantic composers. Schumann was married to the famous concert pianist Clara Weick, and is known for his beautiful German Lieder, as well as works for orchestra, chorus, chamber music and solo piano. The program, called “Robert Schumann, the Cheerful Savage,” written and narrated by Joanne Regenhardt, will feature his music sung by mezzo soprano Janelle DeStefano and played by pianist James Frimmer. The program will last 50 minutes.

James Frimmer has won various prestigious piano competitions. He is currently active in chamber music in the San Diego area, and is on the vocal arts faculty at SDSU as staff accompanist.

Janelle DeStefano is a professor of voice at Santa Monica College. She has sung in opera and orchestral works throughout the United States and is a winner of many competitions, including those of the Metropolitan Opera.

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. The library is located at 3919 Townsgate Drive (92130) in Carmel Valley. For more information, call (858) 552-1668.
