The Northern Virginia Ragtime Society (NVRS) was founded in December 1979 for the purpose of promoting an interest in classical ragtime and related forms of music. Over the intervening years, the NVRS has presented more than one hundred fifty performances featuring some of the nation’s leading professional ragtime artists as well as top local musicians.

Since its inception, the NVRS has performed on a bi-monthly or quarterly basis at the Jordan Kitts Studio, in the Merrifield area of Fairfax County, Virginia.

The Northern Virginia Ragtime Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization.
