The Church of Beethoven Oak Park—a family-friendly Sunday morning classical music series --presents:
"Quiet City" by Aaron Copland along with music of Haydn, Johann Wilhelm Hertel and Oskar Böhme performed by members of the DuPage Symphony Orchestra: Margie Arito, oboe, Mike Brozick, trumpet, Mark Lindeblad, piano.
A one-hour family-friendly classical “mini-concert” with poetry and two minutes of silence.
The Church of Beethoven is "...a 'church' with no preaching, just uplifting music, poetry and two minutes of silence in an all-too-busy world." The goal of the Church of Beethoven is to build a sense of community around the arts, by removing the typically formal atmosphere of classical music, by breaking down the proverbial "fourth wall" between the audience and the performers. Featuring intimate Sunday morning performances by professional poets and musicians, it is located in the Arts District of Oak Park Illinois on Harrison St.
