As a nonprofit organization, the Del Mar Farmers Market donates some proceeds to local community programs such as the new lifeguard building, the library and the San Dieguito Lagoon conservation. The other significant use of funds is a college scholarship program that benefits the vendors at the Farmers Market or their children that have worked at the market. One recipient, Dominic Schaner, son of longtime market vendor Peter Schaner, received financial aid for four years while attending Boston College.
He and his wife, Amy White, a soprano, will return to The San Diego Museum of Art to perform music from Spain’s Golden Age and poetry from the Spanish mystics John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila.
For this concert, Dominic will be playing the vihuela, a beautiful guitar-like lute that was favored in the 15th and 16th centuries. The performance is Sunday, Feb. 12, in the Hibben Gallery, 1450 El Prado, Balboa, Park, San Diego, CA. (619)232-7931.
