They All Played Ragtime: A Robert Wyatt Lecture

August 11 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$20 - $25

 

 

Join pianist and ragtime enthusiast Robert Wyatt who will perform many of the more popular rags including Joplin’s “The Entertainer,” “The Maple Leaf Rag,” “Solace,” “The Cascades” and “Bethena” as well as the best rags of James Scott, Lamb, Jelly Roll Morton and George Gershwin. Contemporary rags written in the 1970s by William Bolcom and William Albright will confirm the versatility of the style. Included will be historic photographs and archival recordings of ragtime greats. The audience will exit with an appreciation of the influence of classical ragtime music and a better understanding of its relationships to the blues, stride piano and jazz.

This music event is also offered on August 9 from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM.
