Ars Viva presents Mendelssohn

Piano Concerto No. 1 in g minor. Elizabeth Joy Roe – soloist Symphony No. 2 in B-flat St Paul Overture Symphony No. 5 in d minor Also Music for Life program for children 4 – 10 years.

Music for Life offers families to experience classical music together. Parents bring children between the ages of four and ten to our concerts. They sit together in the audience for the first orchestral work on the program. Then Maestro Heatherington excuses the children to go to a separate room with professional music educators from the Music Institute of Chicago. There they learn more about the music they have heard. Instructors use visual arts, drama, storytelling and movement to stimulate the children’s own imagination and creativity. Adult companions enjoy the remainder of the concert, join their children during the intermission for refreshments, and pick them up when the concert is over.

Pre-registration is recommended. Tickets: $16-$70/person. Free for children in Music for Life program.
