Box Office Information

In 1899, Scott Joplin started a musical revolution which resonates to this day, bringing the syncopated rhythms of African music together with Western forms and melodies in the tradition of Sousa and Stephen Foster. The result was ragtime, and in launched a craze which would change musical history everywhere in the world, opening the doors to Dixieland, jazz, rock Ďní roll, RnB and finally hip hop. This concert, featuring the outstanding dancers of Academy Theatre Arts, traces the early years of Joplinís emergence and the influence he had on the next generation of musical giants including Eubie Blake, James Reese Europe and George Gershwin.
