From Ragtime to Jazz: History Told Through Music

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 | All Events (see all) 153 14th Ave
Seattle, WA 98122

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, this event has been rescheduled for Wednesday, October 28.

Washington Hall has been a welcoming place where people gather, create, entertain, and celebrate since it was built in 1908. Over the years it has evolved into a popular live music venue, and is the site of what was possibly the very first jazz performance in Seattle (June 10, 1918). Join Historic Seattle in celebrating that history with an evening of music in the Central District.

Hear from jazz historian Ken Steiner as he journeys through the history of jazz in Seattle and Washington Hall’s role in it. And just returning to the States from a European tour, enjoy performances by exceptional pianists Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi, pioneers of four-hands piano in jazz who will perform pieces from ragtime to early jazz on two pianos. A special collaboration with Garfield Jazz will kick start this night celebrating music & history.

Cost: $20 Members / $25 General Public / $50 VIP (SOLD OUT)
