Orange County Ragtime Society (OCRS)

OCRS 2018 Flyer PDF

OCRS – the Orange County Ragtime Society – was formed in November, 2001, due to popular demand for local live ragtime performance following the second annual RagFest in October, 2001. Founder Eric Marchese assembled a schedule of Saturday afternoon meetings which have been held over the years at venues such as the Muckenthaler Center, the Nixon Library, historic Bradford House, Steamers Jazz Club, Mo’s Fullerton Music Center, Rutabegorz Restaurant and Rockin’ Taco Cantina.

OCRS musicales typically start at 1 p.m. and wind up at 4:30 p.m. and feature terrific pianists, ragtime musicians and ragtime vocalists from all over Southern California playing ragtime and ragtime-related music. The 2018 OCRS schedule features ten such performances, at the Muckenthaler Center in Fullerton, Bradford House in Placentia, and the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda.

The performances allow Southern Californians to hear some of the best in vintage and contemporary ragtime music. There is no cover charge or admission price required and no reservations are needed.
