Deborrah Wyndham, Summer Music Finale! Ragtime Pianist Wed. Aug 17 at 3pm

Deborrah WyndhamJoin us on Wednesday, August 17th at 3 PM for our final Summer Music Series musical guest, Deborrah Wyndham, Ragtime Pianist.

This program is the finale of our summer music series and includes the music of Scott Joplin and other ragtime composers plus boogie woogie, novelty rags and more, including original contemporary compositions by the presenter, for a performance that appeals to all ages and musical tastes.

Drawings for the winning entries in our Summer Reading Bingo contest will be drawn during the program.

Pianist/Composer Deborrah Wyndham will present a variety of music on the piano in this program with ragtime music as the highlight. Ragtime, whose initial era of popularity began in the early 1890s and ended around 1915, is known as our nation’s first American “pop” music.

Wyndham, who has given over 3,500 past performances, plays a wide variety of music from ragtime and other early jazz styles to original contemporary music. With appearances on FOX, NBC and ABC, listeners have described her playing as sounding ‘like four hands’. Deborrah performs regularly throughout the U.S.
