Concert to Focus on Pittsburgh's Forgotten Ragtime Composers
Allegheny City Ragtime Orchestra
Comes to Carnegie Carnegie Hall
Friday, November 4 at 7:30 p.m.
Renowned stride pianist and music historian Tom Roberts and the Allegheny City Ragtime Orchestra (ACRO) introduce Pittsburgh’s forgotten ragtime composers. What a great idea!
Roberts has unearthed a trove of hidden musical gems that have been “lost” for more than a century. In addition to works by Pittsburgh composers George Reeg, K.F.W. Guenther and Carl Bruno, ACRO will perform compositions from the original orchestrations of the great composers of the ragtime
era – Scott Joplin, James Scott and Tom Turpin.
A dessert reception with the performers follows the concert, in the Lincoln Gallery. Tickets are $15 in advance, $25 at the door, and $10 for students. www.carnegiecarnegie.org or call 412-276-3456.
