Accomplished pianists to hold fundraising concert in Solana Beach July 20

On Saturday, July 20, from 1-4 p.m., a devoted group of accomplished pianists will be performing at Founders’ Hall (1036 Solana Drive in Solana Beach) to share their love of classical piano music.

This small, but growing group of piano music lovers will offer a full program of works by such diverse composers as J.S. Bach, Frédéric Chopin, Johannes Brahms, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Franz Liszt. Though they may call themselves “amateurs,” many of the performers play at a very high level. Best of all, the recital is free. Donations are accepted, and a silent auction will be held at this event to raise money for this nonprofit organization. Bid on golf packages, sushi classes, musical gift baskets and more in the silent auction.

AmateurPianists was founded in San Diego by Glenn Kramer to provide a forum for outstanding amateur pianists of all professions to perform in front of a live audience. Since its formation, membership has grown to over 320 piano enthusiasts. Membership is free. Performances are held at various venues—from recital halls and libraries to churches and private homes. The group also provides educational opportunities, such as conducting a Master Class Series on performing on the piano. Its ambition is to hold an International Amateur Piano Competition in San Diego. Toward this end, it is seeking to raise funds through sponsorships, silent auctions, and other fundraising activities.

For more information on how to become a member or to donate to this worthy organization, please visit www.AmateurPianists.org. Silent auction items will also be posted immediately prior to the July 20 recital. (The silent auction begins at 1 p.m., followed by the piano recital at 2 p.m.) RSVP to (858) 432-3004; www.AmateurPianists.org; info@amateurpianists.org.
