Mario Ojeda, born in Chula Vista, California started playing the violin at 12 years of age. He learned much of the classical symphonic pieces quickly and soon was asked to join several noted performing groups in this area. These include Opera San Luis Obispo, Symphony of the Vines, SLO Symphony Orchestra, Santa Maria Philharmonic, Cuesta Master Chorale. His teacher, Paul Severtson introduced him to Stanley Stern, who introduced him to Ragtime music, Tango music, Folk Music, American Jazz, and even some ethnic music. Now Stanley has invited Mario to the Ragtime Festival to play for the dance teachers, and to hear and learn from the great musicians who play there.
