MILWAUKEE – American pianist Jeffrey Siegel continues the 2009-2010 Keyboard Conversations® Series with "Chopin the Storyteller" on Wednesday, March 10, 2010, at Wisconsin Lutheran College. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Schwan Concert Hall.

This season, Siegel is "Celebrating Chopin" in his four-part series. This program includes Ballades of Chopin, Novelettes of Robert Schumann (whose 200th birthday we also celebrate this season) and Ballades of Brahms. Siegel's enthusiasm is contagious, his credentials are world-class and his virtuosity is astounding. His performances begin with an insightful and entertaining prologue on the music and its composer, are followed by a full performance of the works and end with a lively question and answer session.

Wisconsin Ave. Tickets are $33 general, $30 seniors and $12 students. To purchase tickets, call the WLC box office at (414) 443-8802 or visit wlc.edu/arts.
