‘Chamber Music is Fun’ in Rancho Santa Fe


Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club and FanFaire Foundation presented “Chamber Music is Fun” on June 29 at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club.

The show featured San Diego’s up and coming Impromptu Quartet of young musicians and other members of FanFaire Foundation’s “KIDS Playing For KIDS” program in a variety program of classical music, Broadway musicals, and movie soundtracks

The Quartet members, whose ages range from 13 to 21, are Eli Grote (cello), Allan Huang (second violin), Christopher Wong (viola) and Jonathan Wong (first violin). They are founding members of FanFaire Foundation’s “KIDS Playing For KIDS” program who performed at the program’s launch in October 2011.

In addition, all of these young artists are not only musically gifted but also excel in math and science — in line with FanFaire Foundation’s mission of nurturing the kind of creativity much-needed in this knowledge-based economy through programs that highlight the often ignored creative convergence of music and science.
