A mind-boggling ragtime /boogie -boogie music man, the incredible fast fingered master pianist Bob Milne can get you dancing in the aisles and bouncing in your seats at the . Fans of Milne eagerly await his unforgettable solo performances on piano, as he returns once again to Enumclaw by special request.
The 2 p.m. Bob Milne concert is presented by Chalet Arts Showcase Theater (CAST) as a fundraiser to help renovate the historic downtown theater. The goal of CAST is to bring a variety of performing arts to the Chalet Theater throughout the year while movies will continue to be shown.
Milne is considered to be the best ragtime pianist in the world and his concert schedule of 250 bookings a year clearly indicates his huge popularity. His performances stretch across the map from Michigan to Ontario, Florida, Tennessee, New York, New Jersey, and California and places in between.
As a world renowned entertainer Milne has played before presidents and world leaders, including his performance in Japan and before the Swiss parliament. He has toured the world on behalf of the U.S. Dept of State that engages him in the role of “Musical Ambassador.”
Milne is an icon of American music, and was in concert and filmed at the United States Library of Congress where he was given recognition as a “National Treasure.”

Those who have never heard of this extraordinary talent can see him on YouTube and check out his website at http://bobmilne.com.
