Nielsen Concert Series: Peacherine Ragtime Orchestra

March 9, 2022

Peacherine Ragtime Orchestra, Stage and Screen Spectacular, will perform on Monday, March 28, 7:00 p.m. at St. Mark Lutheran Church.

Join the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra for a musical time machine back to the fun and excitement of the early 20th century. Tap your feet to the syncopated stylings of the early 1900s - from tongue in cheek vocal numbers to the classics of Scott Joplin and George Gershwin, and even pop favorites by The Beatles and Queen. Watch classic silent films underscored by a live twelve-person orchestra with live music and sound effects! It's a program sure to make both young and old smile from ear to ear. Grab your bowler hat and suspenders, park your Model T down the street, and enjoy a trip back in time with Peacherine!

Tickets: $10 adults, $5 students w/ID, free to Grand View students, staff, and faculty and members of St. Mark
