Presenting Brass Transit! Music That is Feeling Stronger Every Day...

Saturday, October 4 ~ 8:00 pm ~ 2014
SCHUSTER CENTER

BRASS TRANSIT rock ensemble
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
PATRICK REYNOLDS conductor   

In the early days Chicago described themselves as a "rock and roll band with horns." Yet, the group is known not only for deep musicality... but also a message.

With time, their musical style softened a bit, and they produced a few chartbuster ballads, followed by two decades in which the hits just kept on coming, making them the leading U.S. singles charting group during the 1970s with 21 top-ten singles and five number-one albums!

watchicon_HomeNow we kick off the Rockin' Orchestra Series with Brass Transit - a dynamic, crowd-pleasing, studio-tight Chicago tribute band with a show that includes all the hits from Chicago's golden age: "25 or 6 to 4," "Another Rainy Day in New York City," "Beginnings," "Call On Me," "Color My World," "Dialogue," "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" "Feelin' Stronger Every Day," "Free," "Hard Habit to Break," "Hard to Say I'm Sorry," "I'm a Man," "(I've Been) Searchin' So Long," "Just You 'n' Me," "Lowdown," "Make Me Smile," "Movin' In," "Old Days," "Questions 67 & 68," "Saturday in the Park," "The Approaching Storm," "Wake Up Sunshine," "Wishing You Were Here," and "You're the Inspiration."

Join us when your Philharmonic welcomes Brass Transit for an evening of world-class horns, rocking rhythm, and superb vocal talent. We'll transport you to the freewheeling days of the 1970s and beyond.

Jazz Master Pizzarelli Opens the Pops Season with Iconic American Classics

Friday, October 10 & Saturday, Oct 11 ~ 8:00 pm ~ 2014
SCHUSTER CENTER

Button_tickets2Button_series2Button_about2


NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
JOHN PIZZARELLI vocals, guitar   

He’s been called “hip with a wink,” “madly creative,” “a tour de force,” “a rare entertainer,” “the genial genius of the guitar, ” and the man responsible for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz.”

He’s jazz guitarist and vocalist John Pizzarelli and he’s definitely got game.

His bona fides include performing with Benny Goodman, Les Paul, Zoot Sims, Clark Terry, Slam Stewart, and George Shearing. As well as opening for such greats as Dave Brubeck, Ramsey Lewis, Rosemary Clooney, and Frank Sinatra.

His impressive album discography includes The Rare Delight of You (2002), Bossa Nova (2004), Knowing You (2005), Dear Mr. Sinatra (2006), With a Song in My Heart (2008 Grammy Award nomination),  Rockin’ in Rhythm (2010), and Double Exposure (2012).

He's even recorded with Beatle Paul McCartney’s several tracks of the 2012 album, Kisses on the Bottom!

On the Mead Theatre stage, armed with his trusty guitar and intimate voice, John will re-create the memories that Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra engendered with their many classic hits.

So come and find yourself swept away when Neal Gittleman melds the power of the full Dayton Philharmonic with the awesome talents of jazz legend John Pizzarelli.

PhilharMonster Kicks Off a Month of Spooky Fun: Orchestra, Dance & Rock!

Sunday, October 12 ~ 3:00 pm ~ 2014
SCHUSTER CENTER

Button_tickets2Button_series2Button_about2


NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
Come early at 2:00 pm for pre-concert fun in the Wintergarden
  

Your Dayton Philharmonic kicks off the 2014–2015 Family Series when we present the legendary PhilharMonster Halloween concert.

It’s all part of a Halloween trifecta of special performances:
PhilharMonster on October 12,
Dayton Ballet’s Ghost Stories on October 23-26, and a very special
rock’n roll presentation of the Music of Rocky Horror on October 31!

Make a special note! In order to accomodate all this spooky hilarity, we’ve moved PhilharMonster up to October 12 this year. The costume contest is a great opportunity to let your little ones test-drive their costumes early!

Of course, Artistic Director and Conductor Neal Gittleman continues his tradition of onstage merriment when he shows up as… sorry, we can't say (it’s a closely-guarded secret). Our Maestro leads a costumed Dayton Philharmonic in a program featuring a wild range of music specially selected for kids from ages 3 to 93. The fun continues when the Orchestra's musicians stage their own costume contest. Be there to applaud your favorite.

Activities begin at 2 pm. You’ll find crafts, an instrument petting zoo, and the annual costume contest at 2:15. Prizes will be awarded for 1) cutest, 2) scariest, and 3) most creative costumes in age categories of 3-5, 6-9, and 10 and up.

This Handy Calendar Puts the Full Season at Your Fingertips

For the bold 2014–2015 New Horizons Season, the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance transports you to an ever-expanding world of emotion and imagination.

> See all subscriptions
> See chronological list of performances


We continue the innovation of our dramatic Signature Events; performances that combine the power of all three art forms. The spectacular “Russian Panorama” opens the season, “Classical Destinations” marks the halfway point at New Year’s Eve, and The Pearl Fishers completes the Opera series in April.

The cherished classics are here: beloved symphonies and concertos, seasonal events like PhilharMonster, Hometown Holidays, Messiah, and The Nutcracker. Some appear in new guises! Dayton Ballet’s Peter Pan will be performed for the first time with the full Philharmonic.

But as important are the new experiences. Our Composer-in-Residence, Stella Sung, teams with Karen Russo Burke for the World Premiere of an exciting new ballet in February 2015. The Opera brings Dead Man Walking to the Midwest for the first time in over a decade. For all four Classical Connections concerts, Neal Gittleman creates a thematic arch with Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich at the focal point. In fact, for those who love Russian music, the season is a treasure trove of wonderment.

Then, to honor Benjamin Britten on the anniversary of his 100th birthday, we welcome Keith Lockhart to conduct the amazing War Requiem. Audience-pleasing artists such as jazz great John Pizzarelli are back, while we also look forward to newcomers to our stage such as Tiempo Libre and Indigo Girls.

Nowhere else in the nation can you experience a dramatic arts collaboration with the range and depth of such new experiences as these. Subscribe or purchase your single tickets now and let us, together, chart a course for new horizons.
