Scott Joplin, the King of Ragtime, died in 1917
and was interred at St. Michael’s Cemetery. His
grave remained unmarked until 1974 when
ASCAP—the American Society of Composers,
Authors and Publishers—responding to the
immense popularity of Joplin’s music due to its
use in the award-winning film The Sting,
installed a plaque. St. Michael’s Cemetery has
been honoring this great composer every May
for many years with free, outdoor ragtime
concerts on its grounds. The concert, to be held
on May 19 at 2 p.m., will feature Dan Levinson’s
Canary Cottage Dance Orchestra, an ensemble
that recreates the style of the late ragtime
years. The concert will include a barbershop
quartet The Victorian Vaudeville Quartet will
sing a special number at Scott Joplin’s grave.
Ed Berlin will present a lecture at 1:15 p.m.
St. Michael's is dedicated to the
celebration of life. St. Michael's continues
to be an active participant in
the lives of the citizens of New York
as it has been since 1852. For
