Fall Youth Festival

2017 Ragtime Youth Festival

Festival:  Saturday, November 4 & Saturday, November 11
Fall Concert:  Sunday, November 12   (2:00pm at Radius Center)


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 15 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.  The registrations and payment must be received by October 14.

Reminder post cards will be mailed to teachers.

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