Dec 13 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Michigan-based ragtime artist, Peter Bergin, has entertained audiences for over two decades. The Music House welcomes back pianist and singer, Peter Bergin on Dec. 13th at 7 pm for a very special holiday Sing-A Long! Not only is he a cherished member of our musical family but he has become one of our audience's favorite performers. Bergin will bring his talent to the holidays, playing classic Holiday songs that you can sing-a long to. One of the favorite parts of his concerts is his walking tour of many of the Music House's amazing collection! He is an incredible artist, singer and story teller! Peter’s mission is to celebrate life through music and stories, and especially loves sharing the rhythms and history of ragtime piano. Classically trained, Peter embarked on a full-time music career after twenty-four years in computer software. There isn't a day he regrets this decision! In 2017, Peter debuted his first solo CD, Ragtime In Time, featuring the Big Three of classic ragtime, Scott Joplin, James Scott, and Joseph Lamb. Last summer, Peter debuted a new crossover project, Gottschalk to Gershwin, exploring the intersection of ragtime and American classical music, featuring Louis Moreau Gottschalk, George Gershwin, Scott Joplin, Eubie Blake, among others. Peter is widely sought-after for school assemblies, libraries, museums, retirement homes, and community concert venues. Playing in the heart of community brings Peter immense joy and satisfaction. He looks forward to

The story was adapted from the memoir The Great Locomotive Chase by William Pitenger. The film stars Buster Keaton who co-directed it with Clyde Brukma. The General has since been reevaluated, and is now often ranked among the greatest American films ever made, and was included in the first class of the Library of Congress Film Registry in 1989.
