CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS – NORWOOD PARK, LAKEVIEW, WEST LOOP, OLD TOWN, OAK PARK

At just 87 years young, local resident Cecilia Jakubowski relishes her first time as a celebrated artist for the Norwood Crossing 7th Fall Annual Art Exhibit.  As a Norwood Crossing resident, 20 of Cecilia's paintings were shown earlier this winter in the Northwest Café at Norwood Park's Metra Station.

"This is my first art show, and I was surprised when I was offered the opportunity for my own show," said Cecilia.  Cecilia is a member of the Norwood Crossing Expressive Arts program where she's learned to fine tune her artistic talents.

LAKEVIEW

This week, it's Third Thursdays on Southport.  From 5pm to 8pm, you can join local merchants along Southport Avenue between Belmont and Irving Park.  Every month, you can enjoy appetizers, complimentary beverages, discounts, freebies and much more.

Join in on the fun that's sponsored through Shop Lakeview.

WEST LOOP

Now this is going to be some performance.  This Friday and Saturday the Merit School of Music will feature more than 360 of their most advanced jazz and classical students.  The "Performathon" is celebrating its 29th year.  There is no admission fee for the event which runs from 7am-8pm on Friday, February 19 and 8:30am-7pm on Saturday, February 20.

Students are accepted into the school's Tuition-free Conservatory (TfC) through auditions.  Not one student pays tuition as costs for this esteemed program are fully-funded by the program's generous donors.

OLD TOWN

Just up the street from the Dean's Team office, the Old Town School of Folk Music filed an application for a new building on vacant land at 4543 N. Lincoln.  The structure would include dance studios, classrooms and a 133-seat performance venue. 

The total cost for this expansion is estimated at $18 million and groundbreaking is expected to begin later this year.  Scott Hargadon, a past board chairman and current board member, said, "To have music and dance classrooms built specifically to our needs with soundproofing and sizing would be a tremendous asset for the school."

OAK PARK

It's a Neil Simon classic but with a special twist.  In its final week, Village Players Theatre showcases Lost in Yonkers, presented by the Oak Park River Forest Community Foundation in association with Community Bank of Oak Park River Forest.

The local reviews have been fantastic. The play runs through February 21st, so be sure to get your tickets now.  And if you can't see this amazing run, be on the lookout for A Chorus Line coming in March.
