Concert Details

Ragtime and stride pianist was a big hit at his TSJS premiere, so it’s time we bring him back. In addition to his normal repertory, you can expect some unusual (maybe quirky?) compositions of his own.


Whether performing the masterworks of Scott Joplin or the score to Star Wars, Martin Spitznagel is truly at home on the piano bench.  A sought-after performer and decorated composer, he found success early, winning a Yamaha Disklavier at the age of 14 in Calliope Media's nationwide Crazy for Ragtime competition.
