Active Minds presents Ragtime & the Music of Scott Joplin 

Join Active Minds for a musical journey into the world of Ragtime and Scott Joplin. We will examine its origins in African American traditions, emergence among Tin Pan Alley tunes, and surge in popularity in the early 20th century. We will also explore some of Joplin’s most significant works, from piano rags to other progressive compositions as he paved the way as one of the most successful African American composers of his day.
