This special 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 on Sept. 28. It is the first in a Fanfaire-Foundation series that will celebrate the program’s second anniversary.
It will feature pianists Michael Chen, Angie Gou, Adrian Liu, and Clara Truong; French hornist Christine Chen; and cellist Paul Maxwell. They will play solos and duets by Chopin, Dvorak, Liszt, Mozart, Paganini, Poulenc, and Prokofiev, and the love theme from the film Titanic. 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.
The library is located at 3919 Townsgate Drive in Carmel Valley. For further information call (858) 552-1668.
