Andrew Greene Andrew Greene

Andrew Greene, 26, is the leading young authority on orchestral ragtime and silent film accompaniment in the United States. He is the Founder, Conductor, and Director of the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra, “the premier American Ragtime ensemble” as hailed by the Washington Post, dedicated to preserving and performing America's music: Ragtime. Mr. Greene founded the orchestra while a freshman at the University of Maryland, College Park, hoping to draw attention to this neglected but historically-important music. He is the curator of the Arthur C. Ziegler, E.J. McBride, Louis H. Burns, Katherine Lingham, and Palm Leaf Ragtime Orchestra collections, along with his own personal collection of orchestrated ragtime, jazz, piano solos, and records. The collection totals over 10,000 selections of music from 1862 to 1950, including ragtime, theatre selections, dance music, and silent film scores.

In addition to his work with the PRSO, Mr. Greene maintains an active career as pianist and musicologist. He has appeared such prestigious venues as the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian Institution, The American Film Institute, and the Library of Congress. He frequently seminars based on his research, presenting at conferences and festivals across the United States. ​ Mr. Greene appeared as guest conductor for the South Dakota Symphony Chamber Orchestra in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in September of 2013

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
