“Never be ashamed to write a melody that people remember.”
--- Burt Bacharach

That was the philosophy of the songwriters inhabiting the Brill Building in New York City in the 1960s and 1970s, and we have them to thank for many of the greatest hits that ever graced the radio dial. Within those walls, music songwriters and singer-songwriters blossomed.

Back then, they were merely aspiring artists scraping out a living in the music business. Now, they are household names. Carole King, Burt Bacharach, Hal David, Laura Nyro, Paul Anka, Dionne Warwick, Neil Sedaka, Marvin Hamlisch, and Barry Mann are just the tip of the iceberg. You'll enjoy a program that features the most pivotal songs of the era, including these:

"Kicks" (Paul Revere and the Raiders) ~ "Promises, Promises" (Dionne Warwick) ~ "Laughter in the Rain" (Neil Sedaka) ~ "Jazzman" (Carole King) ~ "One Less Bell to Answer" (The 5th Dimension) ~ "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" (The Animals) ~ "Be My Baby" (The Ronettes) ~ "And When I Die" (Blood, Sweat & Tears) ~ "The Look of Love" (Dusty Springfield) ~ "I Feel the Earth Move" (Carole King)...

And that's just the first half!

Make plans to be there for this sweeping line-up of songs performed by the accomplished Jeans 'n Classics rock ensemble and backed up by your Dayton Philharmonic.

Music by GIOACHINO ROSSINI | Libretto by CESARE STERBINI 

Cast: JARRETT OTT baritone | ALYSSA MARTIN mezzo-soprano | CARLOS ENRIQUE SANTELLI tenor | THOMAS HAMMONS bass-baritone | HAROLD WILSON bass | NORAGH DEVLIN mezzo-soprano | ALEXANDER HARPER baritone | MICHAEL ANDERSON tenor | JAKE LOCKWOOD actor

CLINTON SMITH conductor | KATHLEEN CLAWSON stage director

“Figaro! Figaro! FI-GA-RO!” Figaro not only cuts hair but is also a schemer and a matchmaker. When the ardent young Count Almaviva needs a hand wooing high-spirited Rosina, he turns to Figaro to help him outwit Rosina's selfish old guardian, Dr. Bartolo. Buoyed by Rossini’s bubbling music, this zany romance sweeps you along through unexpected twists and turns until an ending that leaves everyone happy. You’ll be smiling, too!

After a famously disastrous opening night that left the composer in tears, The Barber of Seville has gone on to become the most famous comic opera ever written. It’s impossible to resist Rossini’s sparkling score combined with his unforgettable characters—irrepressible Figaro, love-smitten Almaviva, sly Rosina, crotchety Dr. Bartolo, and Don Basilio, Rosina’s pretentious windbag of a voice teacher.

Along the way you’ll hear a gem of the baritone repertoire when Figaro introduces himself in one of the jolliest, trickiest arias ever, “Largo al factotum,” known to most by its memorable “Figaro, Figaro, Figaro!” interjection. Whether you’re an opera lover or a newbie, The Barber of Seville will lift your spirits. It’s also a great starter opera for your children, who probably know some of it from Bugs Bunny’s "Rabbit of Seville" cartoon.

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.
