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.
