Paragon Ragtime Orchestra, Rick Benjamin, Director

In an abandoned warehouse in 1985 Rick Benjamin discovered the long-lost collection of standard American “theatre orchestra” scores once belonging to Victrola recording star Arthur Pryor, and with it the inspiration for the Paragon Ragtime Orchestra (PRO). Mr Benjamin gathered Juilliard colleagues to perform these turn-of-the-century treasures, and the PRO was born. This CD is an entertaining testimony to the rich heritage of American theater, cinema and dance orchestra traditions.
