The Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra is “the premier American ragtime ensemble” as hailed by the Washington Post, and is rapidly becoming the leading professional ragtime orchestra in the United States. Formed by young virtuoso Andrew Greene at the University of Maryland in 2010, the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra recreates the syncopated stylings of a bygone era – Ragtime, Theater, and Dance music. The ensemble is composed primarily of young musicians, age 30 and below. The PRSO has appeared at leading venues including The Kennedy Center and The Library of Congress in Washington DC, historic theaters, state-of-the-art performing arts centers, colleges, universities, and concert associations.
