DAYTON, OH (July 31, 2013) – The Dayton Philharmonic Concert Band and Festival Chorus will perform at the 21th Annual Mayor’s Concert on Sunday, August 18, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. at Prouty Plaza in downtown Troy. The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra has been performing since the concert’s inception in 1992. The concert is free and open to the public.

DPO Assistant Conductor Patrick Reynolds will conduct the Americana-themed program with Soprano Rachael Boezi opening with “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Young soprano Clair Northcut will perform “I Could Have Danced All Night” from My Fair Lady and “Don’t Rain on My Parade” from Funny Girl

Guest conductors include Troy High School Band Director Katherine McIntosh and Troy Mayor Mike Beamish.  The DPO Concert Band will be joined by five students from the Troy High School Band as special guest performers: Jake Henson, trombone; Madelyn Bollinger, tuba; Emily Savard, flute; Whitney Snider, oboe; and Parker Savard, horn.

The concert will also feature the DPO Festival Chorus, under the direction of Amy Vaubel, in patriotic favorites including “America the Beautiful,” “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “The Stars and Stripes Forever” and highlights from Mame.

Now in his 16th season as Assistant Conductor with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, Reynolds conducts in the SuperPops, Rockin’ Orchestra, Symphony Sundaes, Family and summer concerts. He conducts the DPO in its Magic Carpet, SPARK (School Partners with Artists Reaching Kids) and Young People’s concerts, reaching thousands of students across the Dayton metropolitan area, and the Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra.

“Now that the Adams Street Bridge construction is completed, we’re excited to move back outside to Prouty Plaza from Hobart Arena,” said Reynolds. “The plaza offers great acoustics and is a beautiful square befitting our Americana theme.”

About the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance

The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance was formed in July 2012 as the result of a groundbreaking and innovative merger between the Dayton Ballet, the Dayton Opera, and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. Together, they are the largest performing arts organization in the community, offering a tremendous variety of performance and education programs and setting a new standard for artistic excellence.  Dayton Performing Arts Alliance performances are made possible in part by Montgomery County and Culture Works, the single largest source of community funds for the arts and culture in the Miami Valley. The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance also receives partial funding from the Ohio Arts Council, a state agency created to foster and encourage the development of the arts and to preserve Ohio's cultural heritage. Funding from the Ohio Arts Council is an investment of state tax dollars that promotes economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohio residents.  The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is proud to be one of five performing arts organizations in the country selected to receive a three-year "Music Alive" grant from New Music USA and the League of American Orchestras.
