ARRIVAL rock ensemble
NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA


Arrival from Sweden is coming to Dayton this summer. Get ready to have the time of your life as they hit the stage with your favorite ABBA tunes.


Internationally beloved Swedish pop group ABBA has sold over 350 million albums worldwide since forming in 1972.


ABBA-mania spans continents from Europe to Asia to Australia and shows no sign of stopping. Their fourteen Top 40 hits are a staple of 70s and 80s danceable pop tunes and have been featured in the hit Broadway touring musical Mamma Mia!, currently in its fifteenth year. ABBA was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.


ARRIVAL from Sweden tours with original ABBA band members and will be backed by the full Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Neal Gittleman.


They’ll bring their passionate, energetic, and spot-on performance to the Mead Theater this summer.

It’s Friday night and the lights will be low while you’re grooving to these pop hits. How can you resist it?

PATRCIK REYNOLDS conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Four Broadway-veteran singers join our own Patrick Reynolds and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra in a "Jersey Boys"–style program that emphasizes the musicality and breadth of the songwriting that made Elvis Presley a household name.

This is not an impersonator show but rather a splashy revue featuring a range vocal interpretations spotlighting best-known tunes including "Heartbreak Hotel," "Love Me Tender," "Don’t Be Cruel," "Hound Dog," and many, many more.

Elvis began recording with Sun Records in 1954, when his recording of the blues tune “That’s All Right” hit the airwaves in Memphis. His early sounds straddled country music and rhythm and blues, and his electrifying performances onstage made the new rockabilly beat the central focus of the American music scene. After RCA released his 1956 self-titled album, Elvis appeared on television in a controversial series of performances. These only fueled his enduring popularity as he evolved into a national icon.

He may have begun as a self-taught rockabilly singer from Memphis, but he's known loved worldwide as the King of Rock 'n Roll.

SAM HARRIS vocalist
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Top Ten artist Sheena Easton and award-winning Broadway performer and singer Sam Harris will take the stage with your Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra under Maestro Patrick Reynolds to bring a playlist of awesome 1980s tunes back to the future when they perform righteous hits from Wham!, Kool and the Gang, Journey, Cyndi Lauper, Toto, and of course, their own hits!

Sheena Easton, international recording artist and stage and television/film actress topped the US Hot 100 in 1983, making her the third UK female solo artist to do so (after Petula Clark and Lulu). She’s a two-time Grammy winner with six nominations. She has five Gold albums and one Platinum album on her résumé. Ms. Easton is the first artist to ever hold a Top 5 hit on five different Billboard charts consecutively.

Sam Harris is known for taking the Grand Champion singer title on Star Search during its premiere season in 1983. He gained wide acclaim and became known for his winning rendition of the song "Over the Rainbow." His first single on Motown, "Sugar Don't Bite," hit the Top 40 in 1986. He has toured extensively, playing to sold-out audiences at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Universal Amphitheatre and London's West End. He is a Drama League Award Winner.
