Ranch begins annual concert series

RANCHO SANTA FE — Community Concerts of Rancho Santa Fe has launched its new season that will run through May 2010.
This summer, the group sent several program selection delegates to the annual Live on Stage conference, “Passion in Performance” held in Nashville. President Jan Clark, Concert Manager Sharon McDonald and Assistant Treasurer Ruby Edman were among those attending. This year, 36 artists auditioned with 15-minute showcases. The group plans to select four new delegates for the next event.
“Due to the depth of international talent presented by Live on Stage, it will be very difficult to select only four performances for the 2010-2011 season,” McDonald said. All types of music are represented, from classical to bluegrass, Broadway to folk.
The new season will feature an opening concert of two pianos played by husband and wife duo Davide Cabassi and Tatiana Larionove at 7 p.m. Oct. 9. All concerts will be held in the Rancho Santa Fe Village Community Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, 6225 Paseo Delicias. Continuing performances in 2010 will include former New York City police officer and singer Daniel Rodriguez Jan. 27, The Canadian Tenors March 10 and finally, The Hunt Family Fiddlers May 5.
Members provide complimentary appetizers and wine is provided by Northern Trust when the doors open at 6:15 p.m. Coffee and dessert are available during intermission. Finally, for patrons contributing over and above the ticket price, there is an after-concert party at a private residence.
