Oak Park Arms

A Musical Tribute for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Oak Park Arms

musical noteThe Monday Night Concert at the Oak Park Arms features “A Musical Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” by musician Eric Schneider at 7 p.m. Monday, January 16, 2017, at the Oak Park Arms, 408 S. Oak Park Avenue.

Born and raised in the Chicago area, Schneider plays saxophone and clarinet.

After graduating from the University of Illinois and four years of extensive touring with Earl Fatha’ Hines and two years with Count Basie and his Orchestra (recording with both), Schneider returned to Chicago and embarked on a richly diverse career that blends studio work, concert performances and jazz festivals.

He’s in constant demand on clarinet and saxophone by small groups and big bands that need a soloist who possesses both sophistication and passion. He walks in the footsteps of the giants while expressing a vision that is entirely his own.

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 concerts are always free and open to the public. For more information call 708-386-4040.
