THOMAS BANKSTON artistic director
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Set in a large central European city in the present, Gian Carlo Menotti’s first full-length opera played Broadway for eight months, winning both the 1950 Pulitzer Prize for Music and the 1950 New York Drama Critics' Circle award for Best Musical.

Political dissident John Sorel is on the run from the secret police. His wife, Magda, and his mother conceal him. The police arrive to search, but their efforts are in vain. John plans his escape and tells Magda to apply for a visa to leave the country. He will wait at the border until he knows his family is safe.

And so Magda enters the consulate only to encounter a near-surreal bureaucratic trap that destroys her very life yet never her hope. Her thrilling conclusion warns tyrants and petty bureaucrats alike: “Oh, the day will come . . . when our hearts aflame will burn your paper chains!”

BILLY NOVICK'S BLUE SYNCOPATORS: Billy Novick, clarinet and alto sax; John Clark, clarinet and tenor and baritone saxes; Mike Peipman, trumpet; Dan Fox, trombone; Ross Petot, piano; Stu Gunn, tuba and string bass; Bill Reynolds, drums

The timeframe of this swinging ballet fits neatly into Dayton Ballet's Ruby Jubilee season as we celebrate the 80th anniversary of Dayton Ballet and the 90th anniversary of the Dayton Ballet School, originally established by Miss Josephine Schwarz along with her sister, Miss Hermene, in 1927.

The Great Gatsby was F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third novel and stands as the supreme achievement of his career. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby, his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, and lavish parties on Long Island is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.

The full professional company of Dayton Ballet, along with dancers from Dayton Ballet II and the Dayton Ballet School, actor/singer Jamie Cordes, singer Felita LaRock, and Billy Novick's jazz band cordially invite you to the performance event of the century. (Last century, that is!)

MICHAEL CAVANAUGH vocalist
PATRICK REYNOLDS conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Sir Elton Hercules John holds court as one of rock’s most memorable songwriters, with so many different types of songs that everyone has a favorite. Rolling Stone magazine puts his music into the category of music that helped define an age when “radio still mattered more than television.” Elton John is also one of the most highly acclaimed and successful solo artists of all time. He has achieved 38 gold and 31 platinum or multiplatinum albums, has sold more than 250 million records worldwide, and holds the record for the biggest-selling single of all time. In addition, Elton has 3 Oscar Award nominations (winning in 1995), and a Tony Award (with 4 nominations) for Best Original Score for Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida in 2000. This November, the Dayton Philharmonic is honored to pay tribute to this music powerhouse!

Michael Cavanaugh is the new voice of the American Rock & Roll Songbook and a charismatic performer, musician and actor. He recently joined the DPO for a knockout concert of The Music of Billy Joel. Cavanaugh returns to Dayton by popular demand, joining the DPO to perform some of Sir Elton John's most famous hits, including “Tiny Dancer,” “Rocket Man,” “Bennie and the Jets,” as well as “Your Song” – Elton’s first big hit.

The concert also features other classic rock standards, such as “Pinball Wizard,” “Live and Let Die,” and “American Pie.”

“My gift is my song and this song’s for you.” . . . And this evening of music is for you; reserve your seats now!

DOC SEVERINSEN guest artist
NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

“Heeeeere’s Johnny!” That lead-in, followed by a big-band trumpet blast, was the landmark of late-night television for three decades.

The “Johnny” was Johnny Carson, the announcer was Ed McMahon, and the bandleader was Doc Severinsen. Johnny Carson often referred to Doc Severinsen as "the greatest trumpeter in the world." Beginning in October 1962, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson ruled the night air for 30 years.
 
Within a week of the final telecast on May 22, 1992,  Doc Severinsen and His Big Band were on the road, and to this day, audiences across America love and respect Doc and his big band—not just because he shared their living rooms with them for so many years but because of Doc’s dedication to big-band music.

His musicianship keeps this iconic American music fresh to this day as he plays pop, jazz, ballads, and big-band classics.

As a band leader, Doc continues to surround himself with the best in the business, and now that includes Neal and your own Dayton Philharmonic.

Join us for this festive musical celebration as Doc and company blow the roof off the Mead Theatre.
