With members of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra: JESSICA HUNG violin | KIRSTIN GREENLAW violin | SHERIDAN CURRIE viola | ANDRA PADRICHELLI cello | JOSHUA NEMITH piano

In 1927, Josephine Schwarz and her sister Hermene opened The Schwarz School of Dance in Dayton, Ohio. In May 1937, Jo and Hermene gathered together the school's finest, named the troupe "The Experimental Group for Young Dancers," and staged a performance at the Dayton Art Institute. This was the very first performance of what is now Dayton Ballet! To mark this historic Ruby Anniversary, Dayton Ballet has planned a very special celebration of dance.

The program opens with a neoclassical ballet called Farandole, set to music from the rich L'Arlésienne Suite by Georges Bizet. The work is a collection of three pieces. The performance continues with the Onegin Waltz danced to music from Tchaikovsky’s emotionally intense opera Eugene Onegin. Four couples take the stage for classical dance duets requiring the highest level of skill and refined technique.

Then, Dayton Ballet is proud to present for the first time a work by internationally acclaimed choreographer Jiří Kylián. Sechs Tänze is a collection of six seemingly nonsensical dances, which together serve as a vehicle to illustrate the humor and brilliance of composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The Dayton Ballet opens the second half with Prelude and Allegro, created by Karen Russo Burke, with Balanchine’s famous Jewels ballet as her inspiration. The work is set to three pieces from composers Kreisler and Leclair, with live music provided by Dayton Philharmonic musicians, followed by a performance of Meditation de Thaïs. DPO Concertmaster Jessica Hung takes the stage with six dancers, bringing an entirely new dimension to this famous classical solo violin piece.

Closing the program, Dayton Ballet Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke pays tribute to the two women who started Dayton Ballet with the world premiere of "Dear Booky" (a reference to Josephine Schwarz's diary). The full company takes the stage, backed by the five DPO musicians performing the works “Andare” and “Divenire” from Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi.

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.
