Egg Hunt & Visit With The Easter Bunny At LYFE Kitchen (11:00 am - 3:00 pm)
Easter is the perfect occasion to bring your family and friends together to LYFE Kitchen Evanston (1603 Orrington Ave) for a day filled with good for you food, an inviting atmosphere, and of course, the kid-friendly Easter bunny. On Sunday, March 29 and Saturday, April 4 at 11:00am, celebrate Easter with your kids and join the Evanston community for an exciting Easter egg hunt on the plaza, just steps away from the restaurant. After the kids find all the hidden eggs (we hope!), head inside LYFE Kitchen for a meet and greet and photo opp with the Easter Bunny (say cheese!). If your kids are still looking for some more excitement, set them up at the arts and crafts table to use their imagination and design a cute picture frame! While the kids are getting in the Easter spirit, it's time for the parents to unwind and enjoy a delicious and nutritious meal. The restaurant offers a diverse menu that truly has something for everyone. Start with a simple snack - Edamame Hummus Plate with fresh crunchy vegetables, smoky paprika, and LYFE crackers (gluten-free crackers available upon request). As your main dish, try the Quinoa Crunch Bowl, which includes quinoa tabbouleh, fresh crunchy vegetables, avocado, arugula, edamame hummus, chipotle vinaigrette, and fireman's hot sauce or the Pizzanini with grilled vegetables, goat cheese, mozzarella, and basil in a stuffed pizza sandwich, served with pomodoro dunking sauce. Other menu items include flatbreads, burgers, pasta, and the popular Chocolate Budino. After a fun-filled afternoon with the Easter Bunny, the kids are going to be hungry! LYFE Kitchen offers a children's menu including Cheesy Flatbread, Unfried Chicken Strips, Crispy Gardein Tenders, Fish Tacos, Tofu Tacos, and Pasta with Tomato Sauce. All children's entrees are served with a choice of baked sweet potato fries or fresh fruit. Gather your friends and family and head to LYFE Kitchen to enjoy the fun Easter festivities and, of course, a delicious meal.

The 9th Annual Opera Idol Competition (7:00 pm - 10:00 pm)

THE 9th ANNUAL OPERA IDOL COMPETITION, hosted by The Merion, is the highly-anticipated vocal competition for aspiring opera singers all across the Midwest.

The winner of the competition receives a full ($3,000) scholarship with airfare to attend the nationally recognized two-week workshop directed by baritone Sherrill Milnes and the non-profit VOICExperience in Savannah, GA.

Attending Opera Idol's Final Round will be Milnes, conducting the competition in a Master Class format. Once considered a Chicago-only singing competition, Opera Idol at The Merion is now attracting a higher level of talented performers from further afield. "The buzz is out among aspiring young opera singers who compete to win invaluable training with opera greats such as baritone Sherrill Milnes, soprano Maria Zouves and composer Carlisle Floyd," said 2011 Opera Idol winner Elda Peralta. "The competition is becoming a lot more recognized."

OPERA IDOL 'JUNIOR' invites young, aspiring singers to showcase their talent and compete for a $500 scholarship to apply toward tuition for the CAMP VOICE for Teens, directed by opera star Sherrill Milnes, or toward continued vocal studies of winner's choosing. The winner will also be invited to perform at the senior division 9th Annual Opera Idol Finals event on April 17th, 2015 at 7pm!

Please make your reservations today! Seating is limited.

* Opera Idol Preliminary Rounds (March 3rd, 11th, & 19th 7:30pm) * Opera Idol 'Junior' Competitions (March 31st & April 2nd 7:30pm) * Opera Idol FINALS (April 17th 7:00pm)

Chicago Philharmonic Presents Scents Of Beauty: Debussy, Ravel, De Falla (7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

Spring is in the air as the Chicago Philharmonic opens its April concert with Debussy’s fragrant Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun.

Actress Barbara Robertson performs a dramatic reading of the poem by Mallarme that inspired Debussy’s famous work. Next, pianist Jorge Federico Osorio takes audience members' senses on a stimulating walk through Nights in the Gardens of Spain; the perfumes of orange, jacaranda, pomegranate and Valencia rose abound in this aromatic work by Manuel de Falla. Osorio also performs Maurice Ravel’s sensuous and spicy Concerto for the Left Hand. And if one can smell salt and fish, it is only because we are setting off to explore Claude Debussy’s wildly impressionistic picture of the sea, La mer.

Audience members will be transported by scents, colors, and evocative orchestrations that go far beyond our shores. Claude Debussy: Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun Manuel De Falla: Nights in the Gardens of Spain Maurice Ravel: Piano Concerto for Left Hand Claude Debussy: La mer: Scott Speck, Conductor and Artistic Director Jorge Federico Osorio, Piano Soloist Barbara Robertson, Actor.

Pick-Staiger Hall 50 Arts Circle Drive Evanston, IL 60208 (Northwestern Campus) Purchase Tickets ($25 - $75, $10 Students) Online at chicagophilharmonic.org or Call 312-957-0000

Evanston Symphony Orchestra - Swan Lake & Mozart (2:30 pm - 4:30 pm)
The Evanston Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director Lawrence Eckerling, will perform favorite works by Tchaikovsky and Mozart. Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is the iconic ballet, subject of movies such as the Black Swan and a favorite musical source for Olympic skating programs. Its 1877 premiere was not a great success as the music was criticized for being “too symphonic.” Our symphonic suite presents 50 minutes of both favorite dances and its grandest symphonic passages. Mozart was Tchaikovsky’s favorite composer, and the passionate 40th Symphony shows why as it opens this all-orchestral concert.
