On Wednesday, June 25 at 1:30 p.m., the musically talented Anthony Kawalkowski, often called the "young Andre Rieu," will bring to the Listening Room an afternoon of high quality music and entertainment.

He will play a variety of musical selections on the violin and piano, including: Viennese waltzes, tango, swing, country, singalongs, and more. Tony is truly one of Chicago's premier violinists and will add an elegant touch to this afternoon concert. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased by visiting or by calling (815) 455-8000.

Last November, 50 guests attended an afternoon concert in the Listening Room. Guests were entertained by wonderful music that stimulated the audience.

Siobhan Cottone, Lakeside's executive director, commented on the afternoon concerts held at the Lakeside Legacy Arts Park: "The audience left energized and enthusiastic. The crowd clapped and sang along to classics!" She added, "We plan on having more daytime programing for seniors and families. the Listening Room is for all ages to enjoy. Music is a language that is universal and ties us all together. This venue celebrates that!"

Come to the Listening Room at 1:30 p.m. June 25 at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park at 401 Country Club Road in Crystal Lake, to hear the beautiful music of Anthony Kawalkowski.
