Scott Joplin International Centennial Celebration

The Scott Joplin International Centennial Celebration main program starts with the winning ensemble of the first Four States Student Jazz Showcase. Then, our own Carol Collins-Miles takes the stage to perform the public premiere of her composition “The Texarkana Jazz Rag.”

Joplin headliner and MacArthur Genius Award winning Scott Joplin artist Reginald Robinson then takes center stage with his incredible Ragtime. The first segment concludes with Texarkana’s own internationally known jazz artist/educator and Grammy-Nominated Roseanna Vitro along with a small group from the Texarkana Jazz Orchestra.

Post-Intermission begins with the presentation of the first Regional Music Heritage Center Lifetime Achievement Award to Mr. Rule Beasley, who will be present to receive the “Boogie.” The Texarkana Jazz Orchestra under Mr. Dick Eckstein then takes the stage to fill the house with the sounds of the best of classic big band jazz, with Roseanna Vitro joining them with standards performed to perfection.
