Celebrate Black History Month with Rags to Riches with the Newport Ragtime Band, an exceptional cross-curricular opportunity (Grades 6 – 12).  A performance and slide show by the KSO’s Newport Ragtime Band surveys the roots of American musical heritage. The program offers ragtime, blues, Dixieland and early jazz from 1898-1933, featuring tunes by legendary black musicians/composers Scott Joplin, James Reese Europe, W.C. Handy, Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller and others. Many Cincinnati connections to this music are also highlighted. The Q & A session following the concert allows students and teachers the opportunity to ask questions of any musician on-stage.
