Stephenson has written a work to feature a signer as a soloist. This unique work uses “text” from the viewpoint of a deaf person, written in a hip-hop fashion, but performed silently using sign language. The translation will be in the program, so that the audience might experience the performance, and seek the meaning after reading the translation. (a flip from the usual way things work with regard to sign language).

The performance will be by the Lockport Township High School band, conducted by Brian Covey. The soloist is Missy Schmook.
In his youth, Stephenson attended Lockport High School for one year before heading off to boarding school, making this piece all the more meaningful.
