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. 14th at 7 pm for a very special holiday concert!
Not only is Peter 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 classics, modern and ,of course, Ragtime! 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 bringing ragtime to audiences everywhere as a testament to America's original music.
