playing a selection from
"Maple Leaf Rag"
by Scott Joplin

Founded by Glenna Sprague, Oakton professor and coordinator of music, the Six Piano Ensemble—comprised of adult students chosen through a highly selective audition process—performs classical, ragtime, and popular music transcribed for six pianos by Professor Sprague. The rich, layered sound of the Ensemble is comparable to that of an orchestra as the melody transfers from pianist to pianist. It’s the only group of its kind in the world, hailed by critics from Vienna to Honolulu as “extraordinary,” “unique,” and “innovative.”
