Nico Rhodes “The Art of Ragtime Piano”
Pianist and composer Nico Rhodes will be taking audience members on a journey through the history and music of ragtime. Few Canadians know anything about Ragtime beyond Scott Joplin’s soundtrack to the movie ‘The Sting’. Composer and pianist Nico Rhodes takes us on an intriguing musical journey through the evolution of Ragtime from classical to contemporary, featuring the rags of its best-known proponents and little known stars. Aside from being a very talented pianist, Nico Rhodes is in constant demand as arranger and musical director and was honoured with the 2019 City of Nanaimo Emerging Cultural Leader Award.
