David Peckham

The 2016 recipient of the ATOS Theatre Organist of the Year Award, David Peckham is well-known to theatre organ audiences throughout the world. In the USA, he has served as resident organist at the Clemens Center in Elmira, NY since its opening. David grew up with theatre organ music and automatic musical instruments in his home from the time he was born. He began taking piano lessons at age eight, then moved to the pipe organ when he was 11. He studied at the Eastman School of Music, then returned to his home in Horsehead, New York, to work at his family’s pipe organ repair shop, L.A. Peckham and Son Pipe Organ Service. He is one artist who knows the theatre pipe organ inside and out.


The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra

The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra is the world’s only year-round, professional ensemble re-creating “America’s Original Music” – the syncopated sounds of early musical theater, silent cinema, and vintage dance. In addition to its worldwide concert hall, university, and festival appearances, the PRO has acquired a considerable following both here and abroad through its radio programs on the New York Times’ WQXR, National Public Radio, the British Broadcasting Corporation, and the Voice of America networks. Since 1989 the Walt Disney Company has relied on the Orchestra’s recordings for the outdoor theme music heard at Main Street, U.S.A. at Disneyland, Disney World, and Disneyland Paris. Over the years the Paragon Ragtime Orchestra has been heard on the soundtracks of several motion pictures and television programs. The Orchestra’s audio and video recordings have been widely praised, and considered instrumental in rekindling interest in America’s rich traditions of theater, cinema, and dance orchestra music. Rick Benjamin’s Paragon Ragtime Orchestra is a non-profit organization. Email; Telephone 570-524-9511. New World Records artists.
