VOLUNTEERS--for The Sixth Annual--The Americas in Concert on 10/5/2013 at 7:30pm.

We are looking for volunteers to help us the day of this event: The Sixth Annual The Americas – In Concert presents renowned stride pianist Tom Roberts and the Allegheny City Ragtime Orchestra in Ragtime at the Hillman Center for Performing Arts on Saturday, Oct. 5, at 7:30 p.m.



The Allegheny City Ragtime Orchestra takes its name from Allegheny City, known today as Pittsburgh's North Side. Tom Roberts, a native Pittsburgher, and his orchestra are dedicated to restoring the lost history of the ragtime era in Pittsburgh. The ensemble will perform recently rediscovered compositions by Pittsburgh composers from the turn of the 20th century. These works have not been heard in almost 100 years. In addition, the orchestra will perform Latin American-inspired pieces by composers from Harlem's Clef Club, an African-American musical organization formed by James Reese Europe in the 1910s. The concert will feature compositions by composers from Latin American countries who were inspired by American Ragtime music, including three “Rag Tangos” by African-American composer William Tyre and  two“Brazil Ragtime” selections by Brazilian Ernesto Júlio de Nazareth.
