Fairfax, Virginia, December 20, 2002—Pianist Jeffrey Siegel, known for his immensely popular series of concerts with commentary, "Keyboard Conversations," presents a special "Conversation" aimed at the young members of the audience – and those who fondly remember the music of childhood. Music for the Young and Young at Heart is presented on Sunday, January 26 at 2PM at George Mason University’s Center for the Arts Concert Hall. The performance features a full program of music – including Mozart’s Variations on Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star; Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee, and Chopin’s Polonaise – followed by a question and answer session in which the audience members, both young and old, can talk about the works and the composers.

Music is a language that is instinctively understood by children. Mozart's Variations, now practiced and memorized by music students around the world, evokes the creative system and its intricacies. Mr. Siegel’s program explores how pleasing, organized melodies like the Variations, and others classical compositions, have great value for children, and for the music lovers they will become.
