Mostly Music: Pianist Peter Bergin
Peter Bergin is a pianist and vocalist who, after a long career as a computer scientist, is in full time pursuit of his life-long desire to share music with the world. While he is fluent in and embracing of a wide range of music, GAAC presents Peter’s “Ragtime Revival” focusing on this distinctly American musical style that was popular in the first decades of the 1900s. In the intimate setting of the GAAC’s gallery space, Peter will play and discuss this seldom heard but not totally forgotten art form. In addition to teaching piano to students of all ages, Peter does programs and concerts all over Michigan to schools, churches, retirement communities, corporate events and private parties.
The “Mostly Music” series brought to you by the Glen Arbor Arts Center (GAAC), is a winter extension of the Manitou Music Festival. Smaller groups (1 or 2 artists) perform in the GAAC gallery, but also spend some time talking about their music. The GAAC, 6031 S. Lake Street in Glen Arbor, provides a more intimate setting than our larger outdoor concerts that allows the audience much closer contact with the musicians. “Mostly Music” will be hosted by Bob Foskett, who programmed jazz radio in Chicago for 30 years and is now a DJ for Friday Morning Jazz at WNMC in Traverse City.
