LINCOLN SQUARE — Classical music is dying, or, more accurately, its audience is.

Oistrakh Symphony of Chicago is on a mission to bring younger listeners into the classical fold, and it'll team up with anyone from hip-hop to pop artists to draw a crowd.

On Saturday, Oistrakh will perform "Haydn's Distant Cousins" with folk-rock band Distant Brothers at 7:30 p.m. at Lutheran Memorial Church, 2500 W. Wilson Ave.

The concert will feature classical, folk rock and some classical-folk fusion pieces created exclusively for the event.

If that doesn't whet your interest, there's also a beer tasting with Lagunitas Brewery in advance of the 6:30 p.m. concert, complimentary with ticket purchase.

Tickets are $20 per person, $10 for seniors and students or $40 for families, up to two adults and three children. To buy tickets online, click here.
