Queens Theatre in the Park (QTP) presents "T’ain’t No Sin, A Ragtime and Jazz Party" on Saturday, April 10, 2010 at 8pm in the Claire Shulman Playhouse Main Stage Theatre at Queens Theatre in the Park, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Flushing, NY. Tickets are $33 and are available at www.queenstheatre.org or by phone at 718-760-0064. "T’ain’t No Sin, A Ragtime and Jazz Party" is part of the American Express Cultural Heritage Series, which allows audiences to participate in a post-show talk back after the show.

"T’ain’t No Sin, A Ragtime and Jazz Party" is a high spirited celebration of the wonderful hot and blue music of the 20’s and 30’s.  The show features Terry Waldo and his Gotham City Band, an ensemble of New York’s finest traditional jazz musicians, with singer and Broadway favorite Colleen Hawks. 

Spend an evening with the man "The New York Times" called a "ragtime pianist nonpareil and eminent scholar of the form." Terry Waldo, world-famous performer of ragtime, stride and classic American popular music, has played at Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Supreme Court (at the request of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor), and many of NYC’s historic jazz and cabaret venues like The Cookery, The Village Gate and The Bottom Line. Terry Waldo’s book This Is Ragtime was republished this year by Jazz at Lincoln Center Library Editions, with an introduction by Wynton Marsalis.

Waldo’s Gotham City Band includes Colleen Hawks (vocals), Joe Muranyi (clarinet and vocals), Peter Ecklund (cornet), Brian Nalepka (string bass and tuba), Arnie Kinsella (drums), Terry Waldo (piano and vocals).
