PSIPC Reinvigorates Education Program

PSIPC Reinvigorates Education Program

After a long absence from its educational initiatives during the pandemic, PSIPC has reinvigorated its Education & Outreach programming. In conjunction with the Latin Fire concert, Artistic Director Robert Koenig incorporated his and Sara Sant'Ambrogio's music into school setting. Starting at 8:00 am on November 30th, Koenig and Sant'Ambrogio conducted a concert and a Q&A session at Cielo Vista Charter School. Attended by 4th and 5th grade students, the 90 minute session introduced them to piano and cello along with what a career in performance arts might look link. In the afternoon, band, chorus and music theatre students at Cathedral City High School we treated to a two hour session. The outreach session culminated in students from Desert Hot Springs attending the evening performance. Thanks to the generous transportation sponsorship by Joe Giarrusso & Charlie Paglia, twenty students with a music interest/focus were guests at the 6:00 pm performance and reception. Other outreach includes hands-on keyboard classes at Amelia Earhart Elementary and Roosevelt Elementary in Indio.

Mayor Pro Tem Welcomes PSIPC to First Season in Palm Springs

Jeffrey Bernstein, City of Palm Springs' Mayor Pro Tem, welcomed PSIPC to its first season as a Palm Springs Performing Arts Organization. Citing the need for arts and culture in Palm Springs and throughout the Valley, Bernstein welcomed concert-goers to Latin Fire. PSIPC moved from its Palm Desert location to Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs. President Joe Giarrusso led the Board of Directors in making this significant change, stating "Palm Springs is a destination. Everyone knows Palm Springs. And, we wanted to capitalize on that name recognition." While the name has changed, the International Piano Competition will honor its founder, Virginia Waring, in naming its Solo Competition prize "The Virigina Waring Solo Award".
