“Giving the nation a new syncopation” requires many things, maybe most important… a conductor. Here this week to discuss the musical masterpiece RAGTIME (that’s right, masterpiece!) is the musical director and conductor for the show’s entire original Broadway run, David Loud. Who better to discuss the inner workings of this complex look at America than the guy with the best seat in the house and the heartbeat of the show in his hand? This is a musical that was epic both onstage and off. You’re not gonna want to miss this special conversation.
