The Pizarro Brothers at the Carmel Valley Library on July 8
July’s free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be held on Wednesday, July 8 at 7:00 p.m. in the Library’s community room. It will feature pianists Dominic and Angelo Pizarro in a program of jazz standards and selections from The Great American Songbook with music by Gershwin, Sinatra, Duke Ellington, and more. The program will last 45 minutes.
Homeschooled and raised with an appreciation and love for music, brothers Dominic and Angelo began studying classical music at the age of three and a half in San Diego. With encouragement and support from both their mother and grandfather the boys continued their zest for music and later developed an avid interest in jazz and pop. They were inspired by music greats Oscar Peterson, Frank Sinatra, Dave Brubeck, Elton John, Duke Ellington, Ray Charles, and many more. The brothers started performing duets on one piano in 2003 when Dominic was seven and Angelo four. They began busking in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego a few years later. They also performed around San Diego at community festivals, local cafes, and jam sessions with other local musicians. They were featured on CBS Channel 8 with Larry Himmel, Fox News, and KUSI. And they have performed at Anthology, the Ronald McDonald House, the Rock Church, Fashion and Mission Valley Malls, Seaport Village, and many other venues in San Diego. Today Dominic, now 18, attends Cal. State Long Beach and Angelo, now 16, attends the Orange County School of the Arts. They continue to captivate audiences everywhere with their two-piano stylish renditions and improvisations on great musical compositions.
