Virtual: Scott Joplin - "King of Ragtime"
Wednesday, July 13, 2022
Ragtime was a sensation that overtook the United States at the turn of the 20th century and Scott Joplin was the man responsible for bringing it into the forefront. A classically trained musician, Joplin's lifelong goal was to see ragtime accepted as a serious artform. However his life was tragically cut short and Joplin never saw many of his dreams fulfilled. Learn about what made ragtime so special as we delve into the details of his life and enjoy select pieces by the king of ragtime writers.
