RSO presents a Yuletide Potpourri of silent films, including The Night Before Christmas, A Christmas Carol, Santa Claus vs. Cupid, and the Laurel and Hardy short, Big Business! The PRSO is “the premier American ragtime ensemble” as hailed by the Washington Post and is rapidly becoming the leading professional ragtime orchestra in the United States. Formed by young virtuoso Andrew Greene at the University of Maryland in 2010, the PRSO recreates the syncopated stylings of a bygone era – ragtime, theater and dance music, along with underscoring classic silent films using the original orchestral scores. The ensemble is composed primarily of young musicians, age 30 and younger.
