December 14 @ 7:00 pm
The Oak Park String Academy joins forces with the Chicago Consort (from the Western Springs School of Talent Education) for a special holiday concert.
Oak Park String Academy (OPSA) was founded by Oak Park violinist, Meg Lanfear. A passionate visionary and innovator in the music education world, Meg had a clear vision for a music school that would not only offer conservatory quality music lessons to the Oak Park area families but also provide a community to families interested in developing their children’s character.
Now ten years later, OPSA has become a program known for the quality of training its students receive with regards to their playing as well as their joy in meeting challenges. Students attending OPSA receive awards and accolades throughout their studies for the hard work they do every day as they seek to master their craft.
The Chicago Consort (from the Western Springs School of Talent Education) is one of America’s premier student performing ensembles. Since its founding in 1983 the Chicago Consort has performed extensively on the world stage. Under the musical direction of Thomas Wermuth, the group has performed concerts and workshops throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, China and South America. The Chicago Consort is led by Music Director Tom Wermuth, pianist Melissa Zindel, and Executive Director Ed Kreitman.
This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, Oak Park Area Arts Council, and the Alphawood Foundation.
Suggested donation of $10 at the door, or tickets can be reserved online. Season passes for all 6 shows are available.
