The Trefz Forum is Westport’s premiere venue for performances, film screenings, lectures and more. A vibrant gathering place in the heart of the Library, the Trefz Forum fosters an engaged community through civic, arts, and educational programming that reflects the creativity and curiosity of Westporters.

Verso Studios' cutting-edge video production facilities boast a Broadcast Control Suite with a Midas M32 console and a Ross Carbonite 2ME Switcher with six 1080 HD robotic cameras, perfect for event video capture, streaming and the incorporation of live feed audio/visual streams like Zoom, Skype and more.

The Trefz Forum’s stage is outfitted with universal audio, visual, and computer connections and is handicap accessible.

Verso Studios is equipped to capture the sound recording of any event, large or intimate. The hybrid recording studio has 96 analog ties installed throughout the Forum floor, 24 analog ties from the stage, 24 from Komansky Room (behind the Forum stage), and 48 ties split between the remaining meeting rooms.
