The Silent Film Halloween: Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra

Saturday, October 30, 2021 @ 8:00 pm



This orchestra recreates the sounds of the concert stage, the dance halls, and the theatre with – ragtime, dance music, theatre selections, and silent film accompaniment, all performed off the original musical scores. Founded in 2010, by a young virtuoso, Andrew Greene, this orchestra is being widely praised for its work to preserve and share America’s rich musical history, and tours the U.S. with their toe-tapping concert and silent film program.

“Spooky Silents: A Silent Film Halloween” – Scare up some fun as Peacherine underscores two ghostly silent films from the 1920s with live music and sound effects: Laurel & Hardy’s HABEAS CORPUS (1928), and Buster Keaton’s THE HAUNTED HOUSE (1921), combined with ghoulishly delightful ragtime classics. Be sure to bring the kids in their Halloween costume!
