Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra


Presented by the Lehigh Valley Youth Chorus and NCC’s Horizons For Youth, the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra makes its Lehigh Valley debut at NCC.

Hailed by the press as “the premier American ragtime ensemble”, the PRSO will accompany Charlie Chaplin’s The Rink (1916), Buster Keaton’s One Week (1920), and Laurel & Hardy’s Habeus Corpus (1928).

This special one-night-only event, intended to be both entertaining and educational, offers attendees a rare opportunity to experience music and movie history through a dynamic production that is musically, visually and socially stimulating. The PRSO brilliantly transports concert-goers to a time when life was simpler and “unplugged;” when people embraced the community experience of going to the theater. Ticketholders will share in the magic of the silent film era and the infectious toe-tapping rhythms of ragtime music – right here in the Lehigh Valley.

They will also perform ragtime music and several selections with the LVYC.

The PRSO has appeared at The Kennedy Center, The Library of Congress, The American Film Institute, historic theaters, performing arts centers, colleges, and concert associations across the United States.

Tickets: $15 – Tickets can be purchased either at the door with cash or online at (by searching “Peacherine”).
