Listen to live music while enjoying a Ravinia-style picnic at the Schaumburg Park District’s Spring Valley Nature Center.
Concert at the Cabin is set for 5 to 7:30 p.m., Sept. 10, at the Nature Center, 1111 E. Schaumburg Road. The Spring Valley Community Concert Band will perform at 6 p.m. under the shelter on the wooded grounds of Merkle Cabin. Grilled food from Olde Salem Café will be available for purchase, along with wine, beer and other beverages. Concertgoers also may bring their own picnics.
“Many communities across America have these bands,” said Dave Brooks, manager of conservation services. “They put on a great performance of traditional concert band music that people of all ages enjoy.”
The Merkle Cabin is about a 10-minute walk from the Nature Center parking lot. A wagon shuttle also will be available. Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome. Admission is free.
