Enjoy classic piano ragtime performance June 8
Don’t miss an amazing performance by talented pianist Eric Marchese at 7 pm on Saturday, June 8 at the Norman P. Murray Community Center.
Eric is a dedicated preserver of classic ragtime, performing nearly all of Scott Joplin’s ragtime repertoire as well as a generous variety of other classic rags, early folk ragtime and popular Tin Pan Alley tunes.
Over the years, Eric has added to his ragtime library broadening his knowledge of music, which he shares with audiences during performances at venues like the Shannon Performing Arts Center in Whittier and Old Town Music Hall in El Segundo. He has also appeared at the West Coast Ragtime Festival, Ragtime Pianorama of San Clemente’s annual Dixieland by the Sea festival and the Ragtime Corner conducted by the Sacramento Ragtime Society at the annual Jazz Jubilee in Sacramento.
Eric gives educational performances at libraries, private parties, house concerts and more. In 2000, he began working with the Fullerton-based nonprofit Friends of Jazz to spearhead the effort to produce RagFest 2000, Orange County’s first festival of ragtime music held every October in downtown Fullerton. A year later, he founded the Orange County Ragtime Society.
Tickets are $15 and are available at the door. For more information, call 949-470-8440.
