The Thorn Creek Chamber Players and Ingrid Krizan will celebrate the woods with a concert at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 5 at Thorn Creek Nature Center, 247 Monee Road, Park Forest, according to a press release from the center.

Ticket sales are underway for the popular event.

The evening will feature nature-inspired music written in styles both familiar and perhaps new to attendees, according to the release, along with Charles Ives, an American composer who successfully mutated native folk tunes into innovative concert forms. Ives lived in a small town filled with clapboard meeting houses, places where some of his works were heard for the first time, and the experience will be re-created at Thorn Creek Nature Center’s 1860s building with Krizan, a cellist; bassist Julian Romane and friends, the release said.

All proceeds will directly benefit Thorn Creek Woods Nature Preserve and Nature Center. Refreshments will be provided, the release said.

Seating is limited and registration is required by Sept. 3. The cost is $10 per person, and the program is for those older than 12.

For more information on the event, or to register, call (708) 747-6320 or email thorn_creek@att.net.

The nature center is open from noon to 4 p.m. Fridays through Sundays, and trails are open daily, dawn to dusk.
