Profit from this MUSIC FOR THE MIND concert will enable the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation (KPMF) to expand its music education programs for children in need.

The married co-hosts of The Morning Lounge on Legends 100.3 FM, daily from 6 to 10 am, have both had sterling musical careers. Jill has headlined at Birdland in NYC, locally at The Colony's Royal Room and with the Palm Beach Pops. She recently released the CD By Special Request, and is the author of The Diva Next Door: How to Be a Singing Star Wherever You Are. Rich is a gifted pianist/composer, who has been entertaining audiences in South Florida for the past 32 years. His four CDs of melodic piano instrumentals have made a significant mark musically, beginning with his debut release, Quiet Storm. He's also an honorary Board member of The Society for the Preservation of the Great American Songbook.

KPMF is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the gift of music to children and seniors. "We believe that music enriches lives," says founder Kathi Kretzer. "Together, we can provide music education to underprivileged children and performance opportunities for music students."

In addition to awarding scholarships for music lessons and donating more than 30 pianos to disadvantaged children and local children's charities, KPMF's popular programs include:

+ Keyboards for Kids: Group piano lessons for 100+ inner-city school children at the Center for Creative Education in Pleasant City.

+ Kretzer Kids: More than 30 gifted young people who perform over 50 concerts every year in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and children's hospitals.

+ Music for the Mind: Concert series at CityPlace held the third Tuesday of every month for the past 15 years. These concerts have featured more than 11,325 young musicians and raised over $638,000 for music in our schools and community.

+ Physicians Talent Showcase: Annual concert featuring a group of talented medical doctors, raising much-needed funds for children's charities.

+ Keys to the Cities: The headline-grabbing campaign that placed 18 whimsically painted pianos in public spots from Jupiter to Delray Beach for public enjoyment. The pianos were later donated to local children's charities.
