We will welcome Ethan Uslan, who will perform ragtime piano.
Ethan Uslan (pronounced "Yoo-slin") is one of the hottest names on the ragtime/traditional jazz scene today. The first place winner of the 2007 World Championship Old-Time Piano Playing Contest (Peoria, IL), Uslan has performed on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion as well as various concerts and festivals nationwide. Uslan studied classical piano as a child in South Orange, N.J. and later majored in classical piano performance at Indiana University. All the while, Uslan secretly harbored a ragtime addiction, and complemented his classical piano studies by learning to play like Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton, and George Gershwin. He also developed formidable improvising skills while accompanying “Full Frontal Comedy” – an improv comedy troupe that staged live improvised musicals based on audience suggestions.
After college, Uslan found his way to Charlotte, North Carolina, where he has enjoyed playing all over town, including with the Charlotte Symphony. In addition to giving concerts and accompanying silent movie screenings, Ethan has served as adjunct visiting lecturer of music at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. He has recorded three CDs as well several silent film scores on DVD. He is also being featured in the upcoming ragtime documentary The Entertainers.
