Here are events worth getting out of the house for on Sept. 9. Suggestions include Park Forest and Palos Park.
JAZZ ON MONDAY NIGHTS: Park Forest Public Library, 400 Lakewood Blvd., will present Jazz on Monday Nights: Tribute to John Coltrane at 6 p.m. in the Ringering Room. Filmed in Japan in 1987, saxophone players Wayne Shorter and Dave Liebman, pianist Richie Beirach, bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jack DeJohnette focus on interpreting a handful of Coltrane’s works. The band often uses his material as a jumping-off point before spiraling into free-form improvisation. Information: (708) 748-3731 or pfpl.org.
CENTER SINGERS: The Center invites new members to join its choir, which starts fall rehearsals from 7 to 8 p.m. at 12700 Southwest Highway, Palos Park, and continues at that time weekly on Mondays. Known as the Center Singers, the choir performs once a month on Sunday afternoons at Wayside Chapel Vespers services and at special seasonal events such as the Center’s Christmas Cantata. The choir is led by director Penny Wills and accompanied by rehearsal pianist Shirley Swanson. Information: (708) 361-3650 or thecenterpalos.org.
