Northern Virginia Ragtime Society

Founded in December 1979

 

The Northern Virginia Ragtime Society (NVRS) was founded as a non-profit in December 1979 for the purpose of promoting an interest in classical ragtime and related forms of music. Over the intervening years, the society has presented performances featuring some of the leading professional ragtime pianists, both domestic/international, and [periodically] other instrumentalists. Few national ragtime organizations have been as successful, for so long. On Jun 19, 1983 the Post Office Department presented the Scott Joplin Stamp.
