MENDELSSOHN Ruy Blas Overture
GINASTERA Harp Concerto
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 7 in A major

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
LESLIE STRATTON harp
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Considered one of Latin America’s most important classical composers, Argentinian Alberto Ginastera wrote his Harp Concerto between 1956 and 1965, a time he considered to be his period of neo-expressionism. The final movement, Liberamente capriccioso—vivace (freely, in a whimsical or fanciful style, lively), shows off the entire range of the harp’s versatility and reflects South American dance rhythms.

Beethoven's Seventh Symphony has been called joyful, abstract, rhythmic, trendsetting, and even convention-breaking. Wagner referred to it as "the apotheosis of dance." It’s almost as if Beethoven had never heard of Franz Josef Haydn or Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The second movement proved so instantly popular that the audience called for its encore; in fact, its immediate success and popularity caused the second movement to be performed quite often completely detached from the rest of the symphony as if it were a symphony unto itself. Not surprisingly, Beethoven called it one of his best works. We think you'll agree.

Join us for Educator Weekend as we honor area teachers and our wonderful roster of education underwriters.

DANCERS FROM DAYTON BALLET II

Panthers and horses and bears…oh my! The DPO explores the animal kingdom as it proudly presents an afternoon of songs all about animals. There’s Haydn’s bear, Copland’s cat, Ferde Grofe’s burro, and Henry Mancini’s famous Pink Panther. The DPO will perform Leroy Anderson's famous Home Stretch and will try to finish the piece before Secretariat crosses the finish line on the video screen above the orchestra. There will even be an "Old MacDonald" sing-along, so come prepared to shout out your best animal sounds!

The DPO will be joined by singers from the Dayton Opera and dancers from Dayton Ballet II, filling the stage with unforgettable performances and lots of fun. Conductor Neal Gittleman will be bringing several of his favorite stuffed animals, and the musicians will have some of their beloved stuffed animals on hand as well. Be sure to bring yours and be ready to have a furry good time!
