Muskegon, MI — RICHARD DOWLING: THE MUSIC OF SCOTT JOPLIN‘s piano concert features the beloved Scott Joplin ragtime piano works used in the 1973 Academy Award winning movie, β€œThe Sting,” (including The Entertainer) plus many other dazzling, delightful, and rarely-heard Joplin compositions.

The program features an Audience Choice selection — a Joplin work randomly selected by an audience member from the remaining complete Joplin piano repertoire (53 rags, waltzes, marches and cakewalks). Richard Dowling is the first pianist in the world to perform all of Scott Joplin’s piano works in public. On April 1, 2017 — exactly 100 years to the day that Joplin died in New York City — Mr. Dowling performed the complete Joplin cycle in two historic sold-out recitals at Carnegie Hall in New York. Rivermont Records recently released Mr. Dowling’s 3-CD definitive set of The Complete Piano Works of Scott Joplin, recorded on a magnificent Hamburg Steinway concert grand piano.

Tickets are $20 – $30 Adult / $12 Youth (18 and under) and can be purchased at the Frauenthal Box Office via phone at 231.727.8001 or in person, open Monday – Friday from 11:00am to 5:30pm or by calling Star Tickets at 1.800.585.3737. Tickets can also be purchased at startickets.com.
