MADISON – Richard Izatt will perform a free, classical piano concert on Aug. 19.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 1297 Slaughter Road in Madison will host Izatt’s concert at 6 p.m. The program will consist of Bach’s “Prelude and Fugue #10 in E minor,” Beethoven’s “Piano Sonata in C major, Opus 2, No. 3,” two Chopin preludes and Faure’s “Clair de Lune.”
