The concert opens with Farmer Glorp, an animated movie loosely based on the story "Sunlandia," created by first graders at the Miami Valley School in Dayton! Working with students at the University of Central Florida's Character Animation Program, DPAA's Music Alive Composer-in-Residence Stella Sung created the score to this delightful short feature, which you'll experience here for the first time ever!
Then the presentation turns to discussion of Dayton Opera's production of a new one-act opera, The Book Collector, to be presented in full on May 20 and 22. In this special Classical Connections preview, Maestro Gittleman and composer Stella Sung take you inside the creation of this groundbreaking new work with musical excerpts as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the composition, libretto, scene creation, and staging of this world premiere! On the second half, Neal, the Orchestra, and our guest vocalists perform the music from the entire work.
