The Rochester Hills Public Library’s Sunday Concert on January 10 at 2 to 3:30 p.m. will feature Taslimah’s Ragtime Band.
Taslimah P. Bey began studying classical music at age 16, and switched to jazz in her senior year of high school. She initially presented the Ragtime Legacy, a lecture/concert on the compositions of early ragtime composers, including Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, Artie Matthews, Eubie Blake and James P. Johnson. In an effort to expand upon previous ragtime presentations and to include her band arrangements for ragtime compositions, Bey formed Taslimah’s Ragtime Band. Bey has a long list of performances in several jazz and ragtime festivals throughout the U.S.
The Rochester Hills Public Library is located in downtown Rochester, two blocks east of Main Street off of University Drive on Olde Towne Road.
The concert is free and registration is not required, but seating is limited. For more information call 248-650-7124.
