We are fortunate to be able to feature the Piano playing talents of Bryan S. Wright who currently resides in the North Hills. Bryan is a pianist and Musicologist who earned his Ph.D. at the University of Pittsburgh. A native of Lynchburg, VA, Bryan was classically trained as a pianist and now specializes in ragtime and early jazz piano styles. With his wife Yuko, he has performed and lectured about ragtime across the United States and abroad. Now based in Pittsburgh, he is the founder and executive producer of of Rivermont Records, a Grammy-nominated label specializing in ragtime and early jazz. Bryan holds degrees in historical musicology from the College of William and Mary and the University of Pittsburgh, where he is presently an instructor.
Bryan will be playing on our 1854 German-made Piano in the Ratskeller which is the perfect setting for Ragtime music. The show will start at 7:30. and we are asking for a Donation of $10 per person which will include a complimentary beverage (Beer, Wine or soft drink) with all proceeds going to the Piano Fund. We will also have Brats and Pretzels available for sale. Bryan has already tested out the Piano, much to our delight, and he is an incredible talent. So, please come join the fun!
