About

The River Raisin Ragtime Revue’s (R4) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization founded by William Pemberton in 2002 and is dependent upon community support for its success. It's mission is to offer accessible education and entertainment of the highest level through the performance, preservation and restoration of significant American music.

R4 transports the audience to the cultural and social conditions of turn-of-the-century America and is dedicated to meticulous research and collaborates with music and history scholars. They recreate our nation’s music heritage.

Special emphasis is given to the contributions of African American composers and the obstacles they overcame in attempting to gain acceptance of this unique, original art form.
