SOUTH HOLLAND, Ill. (March 28, 2019) – South Holland Master Chorale will present two performances of Felix Mendelssohn’s “Hymn of Praise”—April 28 in Lansing and May 5 in South Holland. “Hymn of Praise,” the final part of Mendelssohn’s Second Symphony, includes full orchestra, chorus, and soloists. The 100-member Chorale, under direction of Albert M. Jackson, will again be joined by the Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra for these performances.

Opening both concerts will be the Davidsmeier Quartet. The four sisters, ages 11 to 16, have been playing together since choosing their instruments—violin, viola, and cello—as they each turned 3 years old. They all studied at the Western Springs School of Talent Education and, for the past three years, have been scholarship recipients at the OPUS Chamber Music Camp in Naperville. They recently were featured in the Friends of the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra 2019 Rising Stars Showcase.
