Below are the programs offered by the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra for the 2017-2018 season.
Travel back to the early 1900s as Ragtime becomes all the rage! Hear the classics by masters Scott Joplin, George M. Cohan, W.C. Handy, Irving Berlin, and their contemporaries along with the forgotten gems of the era. Andrew Greene and the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra bring this thrilling era back to life!
Relive the music written about The Great War, with classics like “Over There”, “When Alexander Takes His Ragtime Band To France”, “Keep The Home Fires Burning” and more, all played off the original musical scores! The perfect anniversary show!
