For our April show, the Church of Beethoven, Oak Park brings back a crowd favorite!
Grammy-nominated musician Don Stille, born in St. Louis, Missouri, and acclaimed violinist Daniela Bisenius, born in Bucharest, Romania, both got an early start at music, each beginning their formal training at age five. Each has independently gone on to acclaimed careers alongside national and internationally renowned musicians of all types and genres.
Their combined credits include countless performances and festivals, several cinematic scores, and numerous awards and commendations. Together, on violin and accordion, they bring their classical training, virtuoso skills, and unique artistic perspective to a fun and energetic gypsy-jazz performance that is not to be missed.
Church of Beethoven-Oak Park
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 original Church of Beethoven was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico by Oak Park native and classical cellist Felix Wurman in a repurposed gas station on historic US Route 66. The Albuquerque Church grew out of its humble beginnings and moved into a larger arts space. Felix Wurman died of cancer in 2009, but the Church of Beethoven (now Sunday Chatter) lives on in Albuquerque and has sprouted new branches in Durham, NC, Washington DC, Tucson, AZ, San Diego, CA and here in Oak Park.
Started in Oak Park in 2011, Church of Beethoven presents Sunday morning classical music performances in an intimate and casual setting as well as poetry by local poets and two minutes of silence. The family-friendly concerts are designed to bring classical music to an intimate audience.
The concerts take place at Open Door Theater, 902 S. Ridgeland Avenue in Oak Park.
Hungry? join us at Eastgate Cafe, 102 Harrison St. after the performance.
