JACKIE EVANCHO vocalist
NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

The Miami Valley has been waiting for a chance to see this wunderkind in person. Now’s the time.

Jackie Evancho was a mere 10 years old when she sang on America’s Got Talent. That performance was just the beginning for this supremely talented young lady. Blessed with an astonishing voice, Jackie Evancho has been invited to sing all over the country since her 2009 debut. She has performed.for the Christmas tree lighting in Washington, the royal family in Japan, Pope Francis during his U.S. visit, and, most recently, the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. 

She has filmed two shows for PBS Great Performances and in 2016, at just 16, she released her fourth studio album to great acclaim. Her albums have been selling at the gold and platinum levels. The singer performs in popular, classical, sacred, and Broadway styles, among others, so you’re definitely in for a wonderfully diverse show. “Acting and singing are actually very similar because they’re both telling a story.” –Jackie Evancho

Featured songs include the following, plus some captivating orchestral overtures and interludes.

Music of the Night
Nessun dorma
Lovers
Somewhere
The Way We Were
Ave Maria
Can You Feel the Love Tonight
O mio babbino caro 
Pure Imagination
Ombra Mai Fu
Imaginer
When You Wish Upon a Star
Think of Me
How Great Thou Art

Imagine these great songs with Jackie's pristine voice paired with the big, lush sound of the Dayton Philharmonic under the baton of Neal Gittleman. These are musical stories you’ll definitely want to hear!

Our Tribute to Lenny's Birthday Reaches a Crescendo with the Final Masterworks Concerts of the Season. Reserve Your Seats for Both Now!

Neal takes the podium for two of Bernstein's most kinesthetic works, both written with motion in mind: dance episodes from West Side Story and his composition Facsimile. Here, Lenny found a kindred spirit in choreographer Jerome Robbins; the two artists fired each other's imagination.

For the May Masterworks concert, Maestro Gittleman has themed the program around various facets of the American experience, including a concerto written especially for our own Jessica Hung. In June, we invite the exciting next-generation artist Gabriela Martinez to our stage for Gershwin's jazzy, urbane Piano Concerto in F. The evening closes with Tchaikovsky's famous Fourth.

PATRICK REYNOLDS conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

May, 1969.

Apollo 10 transmits the first color picture of the Earth from space. The last Corvair rolls off the assembly line. The movie Midnight Cowboy with Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman is released. Construction of Walt Disney World begins in Florida.

Then on May 24th, The Who releases their album, Tommy. By utilizing dramatic storytelling conventions borrowed from the world of opera, the album broke new conceptual ground. Rock 'n roll was evolving and maturing. The LP record continued to evolve as well. Praise came from many critics and musicians, even Leonard Bernstein.

This was no obscure art-rock effort. Tommy spun off three popular hits "Pinball Wizard," "I'm Free," "We're Not Gonna Take It," and, like Sgt. Peppers two years prior, expanded rock's potential to be interpreted in exciting new ways.

When highly accomplished rock ensemble Jeans 'n Classics meets the mighty forces of your Dayton Philharmonic in the sonically superior Mead Auditorium powered by the artful arrangements of Peter Brennan, sparks are going to fly.

You will hear The Who's rock opera masterpiece in a whole new light.

Dayton, can you hear me?

IN ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SURTITLES


Can passion ignite ice? Who is the mysterious, ardent stranger who so unwisely seeks the hand of beautiful, forbidding Princess Turandot? Will they solve the riddles they pose each other—with love and life itself as the prize?

Plunge into the dazzling, faraway universe of Puccini’s last and most luxuriant work, Turandot. It’s a world of palatial splendor, set in China’s Forbidden City in legendary old Peking.

Puccini’s final opera is his grandest and most exotic, splashed against the spectacle of ancient Imperial China.  But despite the scenic splendor, it's Puccini's glorious melodies that will leave you breathless, including the passionately yearning “Nessun dorma” (Nobody sleeps), perhaps best known as Luciano Pavarotti’s signature aria.

An opera that fills the stage with Imperial guards, executioners, priests, mandarins, dignitaries, wise men, handmaids, soldiers, standard-bearers, and the populace of Peking, Turandot closes this opera season of The Great Ones in grand style!

Celebrated Boston Pops Maestro Arthur Fiedler Left a Legacy of Gorgeous Music

Fiedler's Favorites
Dayton Philharmonic | SuperPops Series

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Pops orchestras throughout the country have one very influential person to thank... Arthur Fiedler.

The Boston Pops has often been called “America’s Orchestra”; perhaps this makes Arthur Fiedler “America’s Conductor.” It is certainly true that Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops Orchestra are considered the standard by which all other Pops orchestras are measured.

Fiedler spent nearly five decades (1930–1979) leading the Boston Pops. As a conductor, he wished for good music to be shared and heard by all and thus started the Esplanade Concerts, a free outdoor summer concert series. He believed that if libraries could provide literature for free, then there should be a place for musical literature to be enjoyed for free.

katz_fiedlerThese concerts led to Boston’s famous Fourth of July concert that still exists today.

Fiedler's combination of musicianship and showmanship made him one of the best-known Maestros in the world and the Boston Pops one of the best-known orchestras in the United States. He consequently conducted many other orchestras including the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra in 1973!

RIGHT: "To Paul Katz with all good wishes. I so enjoyed working with your fine Orchestra. Very Cordially, Arthur Fiedler, May 21, 1973"

On January 10, 1977, Fiedler was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Gerald Ford. He died on July 10, 1979 and it took the great John Williams to fill his shoes as the orchestra's nineteenth director.

Come celebrate the life and work of this gentle conductor with the DPO’s performance of some of Fiedler’s favorite musical lollipops including “Jalousie,” “Moon River,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” and, of course, “Stars and Stripes Forever.”
