The public is invited to a performance of “Hymn of Praise” at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, at the Oak Park Arms, 408 S. Oak Park Ave.

Formally titled “The Symphony No. 2 in B flat major, op. 52,” called the “Lobgesang,” and known as the “Hymn of Praise,” this piece was created in 1840 by composer Felix Mendelssohn.

Mendelssohn was a German composer, pianist, organist and conductor. Recognized early as a musical prodigy, he is remembered as one of the most popular composers of the Romantic Era.

His best-known pieces include incidental music for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” “The Italian Symphony” and the “Scottish Symphony.”

The Oak Park Arms is a rental retirement community which provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Furnished apartments are also available for a short-term stay - a weekend, a week, a month or longer.

The event is free and open to the public. Call Jill Wagner at 708-386-4040.
