Visitors to the 1893 World’s Fair commemorated their trip with an unlikely souvenir—sheet music. Lake Forest College Professor of Music Don Meyer presents an album pre-release concert featuring these musical mementos of the stately White City and infamous Midway Plaisance, timed to the 125th anniversary of the official October 1892 opening of the fair.
