Rhythm & Ragtime

Greetings to all! Please consider attending this upcoming TSO concert. It will be a celebration of Scott Joplin whose 100th anniversary of death we celebrate this year. Scott Joplin put Texarkana on the world musical map, and we wanted to make sure we were at the forefront of the festivities for this momentous event. Pianist Scott Kirby will premiere a brand new medley of famous Joplin Rags arranged for piano and orchestra. It will be awesome!

The concert will also be a celebration of music and musicians of Texarkana. We will feature a piece for player-piano by Conlon Nancarrow – another Texarkana musical giant. In the second half of the concert, the Texarkana Jazz Orchestra will join TSO on stage for some great Jazz/Big Band selections. Our very own Vocalist Candace Taylor will join in which such classics as From this Moment On, Georgia, The Look of Love, and more!

See you on February 4th at the Perot!
