Paragon Ragtime Orchestra

Performs 'Round the Christmas Tree

Presented by the AU Spectrum Series, this stylish and warm-hearted tribute to America’s Holiday musical traditions features favorite selections from the theaters, ballrooms, grand mansions, and humble hearthsides of the Victorian era. Familiar Christmas songs and carols are heard from their original 19th century scores, along with novelties (including a ragtime version of the Nutcracker Suite!) and sparkling instrumental and vocal soloists. As a finale, the Orchestra accompanies a screening of one of the world’s first Christmas movies – a 1905 Thomas Edison.  www.paragonragtime.com
