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.
