After four decades, the Highland Park Strings are still going strong, providing symphony music free of charge to the Highland Park community.

The group is celebrating its 41st season this year, and also celebrating the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven nearly 250 years ago.

This is no brilliant idea of mine. Everybody is celebrating the birth of Beethoven, including the Chicago Symphony, which always copies what I’m doing,” founder Larry Block joked.
