Paragon Ragtime Orchestra at the Opera House
The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra is the 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 program is a nearly exact facsimile of what the Opera House was like during the 1920’s. It comprises the finest musicians, many Julliard-trained or graduates of the finest music schools. Tickets and info here.
Paragon Ragtime Orchestra at the Mauch Chunk Opera House
We go back to the way the Opera House was in the 1920's, when orchestras performed film scores for silent movies by Chaplin, Keaton, and Lloyd, among others. The extraordinary Paragon Ragtime Orchestra, with its retinue of Julliard-trained musicians, provide a glimpse through their remarkable show, how it was in the Roaring Twenties. Tickets and info here.
