Diamond Shines again
By Mona Shah
Charlotte Diamond is returning to the Greater Tri-City area, bringing her passion for singing and music to Castro Valley. Music for Minors II (MFMII), a non-profit music enrichment program committed to keeping music in local schools, is presenting this benefit concert to continue its role of fostering music appreciation in local schools. Diamond concerts are engaging and interactive, much more than entertainment; they offer everyone a chance to capture the wonder and joy of music. This talented former teacher, a creative advocate for quality music, enchants children (and adults) who enjoy her rhythmic, fun-filled and beautiful melodies sung in many languages using sensational props. Her songs inspire and touch the heart as she continually seeks to "Leave the World a Little Better" through the magic of music.
Multi-lingual and creative, Diamond hails from Canada and has recorded several Parent Choice winning CD's and videos to entertain children and build their self-esteem and academics with creative, fun-loving music. Diamond will present an hour of musical fun and enrichment for families; proceeds from the concert will benefit Music for Minors II (MFMII).
MFMII recruits, trains and provides resources for community volunteers to teach a 30-minute weekly music lessons in elementary schools. Docents are supported, even after their initial training, with free access to resource centers stocked with CD's, binders, music tapes, instruments and puppets - everything they need to teach music. The only requirement is a love for music and children.
Join Charlotte Diamond for a wonderful evening as she sings classics such as "I am a Pizza", "Looking for Dracula", "Octopus (Slippery Fish)", "Four Hugs a Day" and songs from her latest CD.
Tickets are $12 per person, and Group Rate (15 or more): $10 per person. Advanced purchase recommended. For ticket information contact Music for Minors II at (510) 733-1189 or visit www.musicforminors2.org.
