BOONE, N.C. – The Appalachian Theatre of the High Country is proud to present a one-of-its- kind performance by the renowned Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra. Celebrate National Silent Movie Day, Friday, September 29, with their Stage and Screen Spectacular. Audiences will travel back in time to experience the musical stylings of the ragtime era and classic silent films featuring Buster Keaton and Laurel and Hardy as they were presented 100 years ago. Performance begins at 8:00 pm, doors open at 7:30 pm.
Under the baton of director Andrew Greene, PRSO is known throughout the country for their breathtaking performances and wide range of musical styles. Their commitment to preserving music from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s is shown through their extensive repertoire, which includes a wide selection of classics from Scott Joplin and George Gershwin plus a smattering of modern-day selections from The Beatles and Queen set in unique style.

Distinguishing themselves with their ability to underscore classic silent films with live music and sound effects, it’s understandable how Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra has graced iconic venues such as The Kennedy Center, the Library of Congress and The American Film Institute. Spend an evening with Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra and learn why people call their CDs and vinyls “first class,” “wonderful, toe-tapping fun” and “the most satisfying ragtime orchestra collections available”.
