Peabody Ragtime Ensemble Concert Fills St. John’s to Capacity!

The Odyssey brought back the Peabody Ragtime Ensemble on November 14, 2021, to a full-capacity audience at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Ellicott City!  Maryland’s premiere vintage jazz ensemble preserves the roots of American jazz with a blend of informative narrative and virtuoso playing. Peabody Ragtime Ensemble concerts are a quirky, joyous potpourri of American music ranging from about 1890 to 1950, spanning a variety of early jazz styles including ragtime, Dixieland, big band, swing and novelty tunes, usually interspersed with a few choice vocals in each set. The concert was available both in-person and live-streamed!
