"Theater orchestras...once played in every hotel, vaudeville hall and fair sized restaurant, few of them have played with more bite and sparkle than Paragon."
—American Heritage Magazine
Rick Benjamin and his Paragon Orchestra reunite Spanish-tinged original score with the cinema classic as they have for twenty years with the films of Chaplin, eaton, and Harold Lloyd. The orchestra will accent the cinematic derring-do of silent film star Douglas Fairbanks in the movie that made him a star-"The Mark of Zorro."
The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra is partially supported by a grant from Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour, a program developed and funded by The Heinz Endowments; the William Penn Foundation; the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency; and The Pew Charitable Trusts; and administered by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.
