Big news! This year, we've added a third Holiday Pops show with a matinee performance in Troy at the Hobart Arena on Sunday.

Perry Como captured an essential meaning of Christmas when he first recorded "There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays" in 1954, in which—among references to the sunshine of a friendly gaze, pumpkin pie, folks traveling from Tennessee to Pennsylvania and vice versa—the most memorable words are "If you want to be happy in a million ways, for the holidays you can’t beat home, sweet home."

 
This December, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will be joined by local duo Adelee & Gentry for a beautiful celebration of the holiday season. Then choirs from the region will gather together with the DPO for an uplifiting holiday tribute that will have you thrilled that you are "Home for the Holidays" in Dayton… or Troy!


Join us for this festive celebration. Perry Como knew whereof he sang: For the holidays you can’t beat home, sweet home.

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Last season saw the premiere of a marvelous new production of Dayton's biggest and best holiday performance arts tradition... Dayton Ballet's beloved The Nutcracker.

With new choreography by Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke, new sets by designer Ray Zupp, and new costumes by Lowell Mathwich, the story of little Clara and her adventures reaches a new artistic zenith. The elegance, grace and sheer athleticism of Dayton Ballet's star dancers, core ensemble and extended ensemble bring the drama to immediate, colorful life. The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Neal Gittleman, again takes up residence in the orchestra pit, giving Tchaikovsky's music the full, rich, gorgeous interpretation that it deserves.

Where better to enjoy this classic ballet and experience the full depth of this wonderful music than at the Schuster Center for the Performing Arts, one of the top performance halls in the nation?

Join us for the holiday classic.

It was 1741, and George Frideric Handel was drowning…financially and artistically.

Two operas that he had recently written had flopped miserably, and it appeared that he would have to leave England. He needed a savior in the worst of all possible ways. A former collaborator advised him to drop opera for the oratorio form.

That, coupled with an invitation from an Irish politician to participate in a sort of oratorio festival, led Handel to join with his collaborator friend and compose an oratorio about the birth and passion of Christ. Friendly advice and a timely invitation proved Handel’s salvation, making the name of the oratorio he’d composed, Messiah (which means "savior" or "liberator"), quite appropriate.

The result was one of the best-loved sacred musical works of all time. Join us for this holiday favorite.

The theme for this festive evening is the many places on the map, both near and far-flung, that have inspired the world's greatest music. From Vienna to the American West, from Rome to New York, from St. Petersburg to Milan, from Salzburg to Prague, these are the fruitful origins of some of the most famous classical music, dance and opera in Western civilization.

The New Year’s Eve traditions you’ve come to love and anticipate will again be part of this evening’s festivities: delicious food-by-the-bite in the Wintergarden beforehand, a flute of champagne at intermission, and a colorful climactic balloon drop.

It's an excellent option for those looking for an end-of-year tradition that favors the 8:00 pm to 10:30 pm time and sets the tone for whatever else you might want to do that night before the clock strikes twelve. Reserve your seats now!
