A nostalgic and joyous look at music at the turn of the last century will lift the spirits of the Gala Opening of the Fortuna Concert Series.
Specializing in the performance of turn-of-the-century ragtime piano music and sentimental parlor songs, the Ragtime Band has become well known in Humboldt County for its presentations of Charlie Chaplin films with live accompaniment. Audiences will be treated to classics rags by Scott Joplin, Joseph Lamb, Artie Matthews, Tin Pan Alley and sentimental parlor tunes and circus band music.
Band member bios are here.
A gala champagne reception will precede the concert.
