Music of Our Neighbors
Music of Our Neighbors, a free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library, will feature soprano Constance Lawthers and pianist Janie Prim in a musical tour of Spain, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, and Mexico. You will hear an ancient pilgrimage song from the Camino de Santiago, tributes to Lope de Vega, plaintive cowboy songs from the plains of Argentina, beautiful popular songs, and travelogue commentary. The program will last 45 minutes.
Constance Lawthers sings with the Early Music Ensemble of San Diego and the La Jolla Symphony chorus, and is the cantor at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in City Heights. She sang with the San Diego Opera chorus and Opera Ensemble for many years, performed with UCSD’s SONOR contemporary music ensemble, and taught voice at San Diego City College and UCSD.
Janie Prim is a dance-rehearsal pianist with San Diego Opera and is organist/keyboardist at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Poway.
