Fall Youth Festival

2016 Ragtime Youth Festival

Festival:  Saturday, November 12
Fall Concert:  Sunday, November 13   (CLICK HERE for flyer with concert information)

We at the San Antonio Ragtime Society feel that the Youth Festival is valuable in introducing young people to this great music.  We are always dealing with the constraints of time, personnel, finances and space.   We are sure that you understand the need for these minor changes and will help us continue this fun event into the next 14 years!

The registration fee is now $20.00 per student.

Aside from the contest participants, we are capping the number of students to 50 per weekend.

Teachers may enter up to a total of ten (10) of their students for the entire festival (not including contestants).

The deadline for registration will be 3 weeks before the event.

Reminder post cards will be mailed to teachers in August.

Contest prizes will be trophies and/or cash or other prizes (music, books, or CD’s).
