Ragtime orchestra will transport Bayou Theater-goers to silent movie era

It’s a good thing that Andrew Greene – the founder and director of the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra – got frustrated with playing Brahms and Chopin when he was a child taking piano lessons. His piano teacher was worried he would quit, so for a change, she gave him music written by famed ragtime composer Scott Joplin. His resulting love of the genre will be evident to audiences at Peacherine’s Oct. 14 performance at 7:30 p.m. at the Bayou Theater at University of Houston-Clear Lake.
