Wednesday, May 30th - Spotlight Concert - 7 pm - Liberty Center
In a new tradition that premiered in 2017, the Scott Joplin Foundation gives the stage to a single artist in a 2-hour, pre-festival spotlight performance. Last year it was Richard Dowling, who gave a stunning abridged version of his “Complete Joplin” Carnegie Hall concerts.
In 2018, we shine the spotlight on the uber-talented Martin Spitznagel. Besides being an incredible pianist, Martin is a master composer and arranger, Billy Mayerl enthusiast, and former World Old-Time Piano Playing Champion. Don’t miss a moment of what is sure to be a highlight of the 2018 Festival!
On line tickets not available as of May 24, 2018. Tickets remain at the Liberty Center Box Office in Sedalia.
