Highland Arts Concert featuring Don Stephens scheduled for March 26

Local artist Don Stephens will kick-off the Highland Arts Unlimited spring series as he brings his talents to the Keyser Presbyterian Church at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 26.

Growing up in Westernport, Stephens began picking out tunes on the piano at the age of five when his grandmother gave his family her old upright.

“Almost immediately I both lost myself and found myself again in my music. It became my retreat, my pastime, and my therapist,” says Stephens who by age 13 was playing in a popular rock and roll band on Friday and Saturday nights and getting up on Sunday morning to play the pipe organ at the United Methodist Church.

Admission for the upcoming concert is free to HAU members. Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door.  Area students under 18 are admitted free and young children are admitted free with a paying adult.
