| $20

Friday June 30: CD Release Concert: Trevor Stephenson ◊ Some Fortepiano Favorites 

At the acoustically magnificent Park Hall in Sauk City (307 Polk St.) where I recorded the album last October. The playlist for the CD is below and I will perform all the selections live on the fortepiano, and will discuss them and the process of making the recording. Admission is $20, we’ll have a CD signing session at the end. Sauk City has some lovely parks right on the Wisconsin River—if you have time and the weather’s fine, come an hour or two early and picnic before the concert!
