Welcome

The Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra is "the premier American ragtime ensemble" as hailed by The Washington Post, and is one of America’s few professional ensembles dedicated to the preservation and performance of America’s first popular music: Ragtime. The PRSO recreates the sounds of the concert stage, the dance halls, and the theatre – ragtime, dance music, theatre selections, and silent film accompaniment, all performed off the original musical scores. Founded in 2010 by young virtuoso Andrew Greene, PRSO has been widely praised for its work to preserve and share America’s rich musical history, and tours the US with their toe-tapping concert and silent film programs!
