‘Music of Our Neighbors’ to be performed at Carmel Valley Library

Connie Lawthers

September’s free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 7 p.m. in its community room.

It will feature soprano Constance Lawthers and pianist Janie Prim in a musical tour of Spain, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, and Mexico.  You will hear an ancient pilgrimage song from the Camino de Santiago, tributes to Lope de Vega, plaintive cowboy songs from the plains of Argentina, beautiful popular songs, and travelogue commentary. The program will last 45 minutes.

Constance Lawthers sings with the Early Music Ensemble of San Diego and the La Jolla Symphony chorus, and is the cantor at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in City Heights. She sang with the San Diego Opera chorus and Opera Ensemble for many years, performed with UC San Diego’s SONOR contemporary music ensemble, and taught voice at San Diego City College and UC San Diego.

Janie Prim is a dance-rehearsal pianist with San Diego Opera and is organist/keyboardist at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Poway. She is in great demand as a rehearsal accompanist with various groups and singers who prize her encyclopedic knowledge of the vocal repertoire, her musicianship, and her technique.

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