St. Michael’s Cemetery Presents
Scott Joplin was interred at
St. Michael’s Cemetery on April 5th 1917.
Open To The Public
For 15 years the, annual Scott Joplin Memorial Concerts have been hosted by St. Michael’s Cemetery, the
composer’s resting place. This year’s concert will be held on May 18, 2 pm; rain or shine.
This year, we have a hot jazz group presenting a style that evolved out of ragtime. Performing the music will
be Dalton’s Uptown Ramblers, an ensemble of five world-famous jazz stars: • Dalton Ridenhour, the pianist and
leader. He is one of the most active and sought-after jazz and band pianists. • Jon-Erik Kellso, trumpet. He has
made more than 100 recordings and can be heard on many movie and TV soundtracks, such as The Aviator and
Boardwalk Empire.• Evan Arntzen, clarinet. He mastered later jazz styles and has given star performances
throughout the U.S., Europe, and Japan. • Joe McDonough, trombone. Has been featured with the Boston Pops
Orchestra and has played with such major jazz groups as those of Herbie Hancock and Clark Terry. • Bob Sacchi,
tuba. He is principal tuba player with the New Jersey Wind Symphony, one of the major wind ensembles.
Ed Berlin, the
director, will give a
pre-concert talk in
the chapel at 1:30.
His topic, in keeping
with the theme of
this year’s concert,
is the transition
