Scott Joplin Online Centennial
"When I'm dead twenty-five years, people are going to begin to recognize me."
—Scott Joplin (1867 ? - 1917)
A series of Scott Joplin Centennial concerts will take place around the world beginning in April, 2017. Institutions with Disklavier technology (shown below) are invited to draw from recordings in the archive and combine them with live performances from their local community. Downloaded lecture demonstrations from the Disklavier Education Network site can also be included for those with video-sync technologies, or with video-only playback.
Margaret Thomas is heading the review committee for academic papers for the Online Centennial.
