Celebrate Black History Month with this 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 heritag.

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. Admission is free but registration is required.
