Kids Koncerts at the Carmel Valley Library on October 25

A special free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be presented on Saturday, October 25 at 1:00 p.m. in the library's community room. It will feature concert pianist and teacher Jacquelyne Silver and 10 young students of Ms. Silver and Barbara Menzie. Ms. Silver will perform first, playing a program that will include works of Mozart as a child, the young Scott Joplin, and Beethoven before and after he lost his hearing. She will also talk about the meaning of music, where it came from, and why we love it. The students' recital will follow this. Their program will include ragtime music and some well-known classical pieces. Both programs together will last about one hour.

Ms. Silver, a Juilliard graduate, worked with such luminaries as Leonard Bernstein and Luciano Pavarotti, and played at Carnegie Hall and on Broadway. She is the Executive Director of Silver Pathways to Music, a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization, where she creates, directs, and produces videos for young people on America's history and its grand music. Her show, "History Alive through Music!" premiered on ITV Cable channel 16, and is shown in classrooms throughout San Diego. Ms. Silver has given master classes at Juilliard, Yale, Stanford, and Fordham Universities, and many other schools and institutions throughout the United States. She performs at the Athenaeum in La Jolla and other venues in San Diego and Los Angeles. She also maintains her piano and voice teaching studio in San Diego for both children and adults.

Barbara Menzie, a graduate of UCLA, has served as President of the Music Teacher's Association of California, North San Diego County Chapter. She has adjudicated competitions, presented master classes, lectures and workshops, and is a member of the American College of Musicians. She maintains her piano studio in Carlsbad where she teaches students of all ages and levels of advancement.

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