[April 09, 2013]  ELKHART -- Students of Birdsong are planning a special recital during Elkhart's "Celebrate Spring" weekend. The recital will be at Birdsong Books & Vintage Shoppe, 111 Gov. Oglesby St. in historic downtown Elkhart, on Saturday at 4:15 p.m.

The Aeolian String Duo will present the concert. Jean Tweet, violinist, played for years with the Illinois Symphony and now teaches violin lessons at her Birdsong Books & Vintage Shoppe in Elkhart.

The shop is a rebirth of Nellie's Café, built in 1914 and an Elkhart institution for years. Birdsong has retained the marble soda fountain counter from Nellie's Café and the mirrored wall piece behind it that features lighted stained-glass windows, as well as two café booths. Come view the old soda fountain and sit in the wooden booths while enjoying the music recitals.

There is no charge for the recital. For more information, call 217-691-7966.
