Peabody Ragtime Ensemble Lunchtime Performance at Hopkins

The Peabody Ragtime Ensemble will give a performance, "Ragtime, Dixieland, and All That Jazz: Vintage Jazz from 1890-1940," at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 2, in Shriver Hall on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

One of the region's premier "little big bands," the Peabody Ragtime Ensemble has entertained audiences for 25 years with its ragtime, big band, swing, dixieland, jazz, and contemporary music. Under the leadership of Ed Goldstein, the ensemble has worked with artists including Eubie Blake, Roberta Flack, Hal Linden and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. They have toured throughout New England and the former Soviet Union and were honored as feature artists at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival. The ensemble has made three records.

The Peabody Ragtime Ensemble performance is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by the Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events. Admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.

U.S. recording companies have funded (in part) the instrumental music for this performance with the cooperation of local 40-543, American Federation of Musicians.
