Lots of music this Sunday at 4

By Jackie Schulz

Music, music, music is the theme of Forest Park, Oak Park and River Forest. There is so much music to enjoy you have to clone yourself to hear it all.

On Sunday, March 6 at 4 p.m., Several of our local music groups are performing on the same day at the same time! I chose Opus 3 Piano Trio and GSM Cello/Piano Duo to tell you about.

A recital featuring Sara Gasse on violin, Hulya Alpakin-Luethi on piano, and Dr. Daniel Gasse on cello will be performed at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church, 305 Circle Ave. at 4 p.m. These internationally known and loved musicians have graced Forest Park by opening a music school right here on Polk Street and are training young (and some not so young) musicians to make music a part of their lives. The study of music has been shown to enhance other parts of the brain and thus make smarter students out of the kids. So instead of driving all over Oak Park and River Forest to hear some other music groups, just walk over to St. John and hear a multi-talented local group play.
