Village Arts Commission Hosts Young Prodigies Concert
Posted on 05/20/2016

The Village of Orland Park Arts Commission invites the community to attend an afternoon of musical entertainment at the Village of Orland Park Cultural Center on Sunday, May 22 from 2 - 3:30p.m. as they present the Young Prodigy Concert.

Featured at the event are 15-year-old pianist and violinist Kimberly Han and 14-year-old violinist Masha Lakisova. Both are award-winning artists who have spent a large portion of their young lives perfecting their musical talents.

Han, a freshman attending Lake Forest High School, began taking piano lessons when she was just 5-years-old. The award-winning violinist spends her free time entertaining residents at several retirement centers throughout the area while teaching violin to children in nearby underprivileged districts.

Lakisova is the daughter of two professional musicians who have instilled a love for music in the upbringing of their daughter. She began her study of piano at the age of four and was introduced to her instrument of choice, the violin, a year later. Among several affiliations, the accomplished violinist is the concertmaster of the Midwest Young Artists Philharmonic Orchestra.

Tickets are $20/per person and $10/per student and are available for purchase at two locations; the Village of Orland Park Recreation Administration building, located at 14600 S. Ravinia Avenue and the Village of Orland Park Sportsplex, located at 11351 W. 159th Street.

Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the event.

The event is a part of the Arts Commission Village of Orland Park Cultural Series.
