‘KIDS Playing For KIDS Classical and Jazz’ event to be held at Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club Nov. 11


FanFaire Foundation and the RSF Garden Club present “KIDS Playing For KIDS Classical and Jazz” on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 2 p.m. at the RSF Garden Club.

The event is FanFaire Foundation’s double celebration of the first anniversary of its popular music program for kids, “KIDS Playing For KIDS,” and the street release of the program’s first CD album: “Classical N Jazz by kids who love music and science.”

The album, which contains 13 tracks of music for piano, as well as for cello and violin, features 10 of the program’s young artists playing original works by composers by ranging from Bach to Badelt, Chopin to Joplin. It also includes an original composition by the program’s Pizarro Brothers. The pianists among the kids played on a Bösendorfer Model 290 Imperial grand piano and a lute-harpsichord (Lautenwerk) by Steven Sorli. The CD was professionally recorded in Rancho Santa Fe by Dr. Hiroyuki Ikezi under the sponsorship of the Ikezi Music Foundation.

The concert on Nov. 11 features selections from the CD album performed by 10 of the program’s 30 talented young artists who participated in the recording. The program is an eclectic mix of very enjoyable classical and jazz pieces ranging from Bach’s “Inventions” and “Partita” to Badelt’s “Pirates of the Carribean” and from Chopin’s “Nocturne” to Joplin’s “The Entertainer,” as well as pieces performed by other equally gifted KIDS Playing For KIDS team members. Light refreshments will be served following the concert.

Admission is free and open to the public. A donation of $10 or more entitles the donor to a CD and to a note on the Foundation’s online Symphony Wall.

FanFaire Foundation and Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club jointly presented the hugely successful “From Paris to You” Chamber Music Concert last spring.

The RSF Garden Club is located at 17025 Avenida de Acacias, RSF.

Admission: Free. For more information, visit or call (760) 666-1810.
