King of Ragtime Writers: Scott Joplin

Saturday, February 10 – 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, February 11 – 3:00 p.m.
Historic Asolo Theater

Concert pianist Richard Dowling appears regularly across the United States in solo recitals, at chamber music and jazz/ragtime festivals, and as a guest soloist in concerto performances with orchestras. Audiences and critics alike have acclaimed him for his elegant and exciting style of playing. Dowling celebrates the life and varied works – ragtime and even waltzes – of Scott Joplin. His program, which recently premiered at New York’s Carnegie Hall, includes such favorites as “The Entertainer,” “Maple Leaf Rag,” “Solace,” and many more.
