Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library 2nd Saturday Concert Series presents FanFaire Foundation’s Young Artist Concert on Saturday, December 13, 2014, at 3:00 p.m. in the Turrentine Room. Talented young artists, ages 7 to 16 years, will perform classical selections on piano and cello in styles ranging from the Baroque to the Romantic.

FanFaire Foundation’s mission is to nurture musically-gifted children who also love science and math in order to utilize and benefit from the creative link between music and science. These young artists’ performances illustrate how well this mission has been accomplished and serve as an example to spark an interest in classical music among young people.

The 2nd Saturday Concert Series runs through May 2015 and features an array of classical, jazz, and other diverse musical styles. January’s concert presents Opera Exposed! back by popular demand. The program provides a primer on opera appreciation with commentary by San Diego Opera’s Dr. Nicolas Reveles as he accompanies young, aspiring singers who perform selections from opera classics.

The 2nd Saturday Concert Series is free, open to the public, and generously sponsored by Friends of the Escondido Public Library. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street, Escondido, CA 92025.
