Residents of the northeast portion of Menifee got a close-up look at the opportunities Arts Council Menifee offers in Sunday's Family Fun Art Fair, held in the clubhouse at Heritage Lake.
Guests visited display booths representing the visual arts, dance, music, literary arts and theater arts. There were opportunities for youths to participate in craft activities and a silent auction was held for gift baskets.
"We're excited to have folks from the Heritage Lake and Romoland communities of Menifee to experience the many opportunities we offer," said Bill Zimmerman, president of Arts Council Menifee.
ACM board members were on hand to answer questions about opportunities in the arts for residents. Linda Denver (left) brought out her guitar to join in the musical demonstration.
The highlight of the musical entertainment was a performance by members of the Inland Valley Youth Symphony, a group comprised of 47 musicians between the ages of 8 and 20.
Soloists performing Sunday were Leland Sarosa on violin and Gabrielle Boehme on flute and piccolo. A youth symphony quartet included Samuel Bondoc (first violin), Ceallach McGovern (second violin), Samuel Limon (viola) and Joshua Bondoc (cello).
