Paragon Ragtime Orchestra will take the stage in November. The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra is the world’s only year-round, professional ensemble re-creating “America’s Original Music” – the syncopated sounds of early musical theater, silent cinema, and vintage dance. The PRO came into being as the result of Rick Benjamin’s 1985 discovery of thousands of turn-of-the-century orchestra scores once belonging to Victrola recording star Arthur Pryor. Conductor Rick Benjamin has built a career on the discovery and performance of lost American music from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.
