Course Description:

Well known as a composer of piano rags, Scott Joplin also wrote two operas and a ballet. His second opera, "Treemonisha," completed in 1910 and published in 1911, was one of the first to celebrate African-American music and culture. "Treemonisha" received a glowing endorsement from the "American Musician and Art Journal" that lauded Joplin for producing “a thoroughly American opera,” and “an entirely new form of operatic art.” Composer and pianist Rick Yramategui guides us as we listen to and discuss "Treemonisha" and uncover its significance in American history.
