Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra Concert at SU March 4

PeacherineSALISBURY, MD---The Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra returns to Salisbury University for a concert, accompanied by silent film shorts, 7 p.m. Friday, March 4, in Holloway Hall Auditorium.

The performance includes a screening of 1916’s Behind the Screen, featuring Charlie Chaplin, and 1929’s Big Business, with Laurel and Hardy. The orchestra performs the films’ original scores live with the movies.

Peacherine is the leading professional ragtime orchestra in the U.S. Under the direction of virtuoso Andrew Greene, the ensemble recreates the syncopated stylings of a bygone era – ragtime, theatre and dance music – along with underscoring classic silent films using an immense archive of over 15,000 original orchestral scores.

Sponsored by the Charles R. and Martha N. Fulton School of Liberal Arts, admission is free and the public is invited. Tickets are available through SU’s online ticket office.
