DAYTON OH (February 6, 2014) – An evening with Arturo Sandoval, Beethoven and his Great Ninth Symphony, Billboard Hits of the 60’s, The Best of Broadway, the timeless opera Hansel and Gretel, a World Premier ballet, and so much more!

The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is pleased to extend its highly successful Military Appreciation Program for active-duty military members, retired veterans with ID cards, and WPAFB government civilian employees in the Miami Valley area by offering 100 complimentary tickets to an additional 23 different 2013-2014 Signature Season performances from February through June 2014. Sponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton, the program will give a total of 2,300 additional tickets to performances of the Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera and Dayton Philharmonic. Those military members who have not yet taken advantage of this program are encouraged to do so by the end of the 2013-2014 performing season.  Go to www.daytonperformingarts.org/military for more information.

“This is our way of thanking our military personnel and their families for their continued service to our great country,” said DPAA CEO and President Paul Helfrich. “It’s also a great opportunity for military members and veterans who may not be familiar with Dayton’s wonderful performing arts.”

Tickets are available now at Ticket Center Stage, located in the Wintergarden of the Schuster Center at One West 2nd Street in downtown Dayton or by calling Ticket Center Stage at (888) 228-3630 and mentioning the Military Appreciation Program to reserve tickets.  One pair of tickets is available per military, veteran or WPAFB government civilian employee household through June 7, 2014.  A valid military, veteran's, or WPAFB civilian employee ID must be presented when picking up tickets, whether before the performance date or at Will Call.  Box office hours are Monday to Friday, 10 am–6 pm, Saturday, 12 noon–4 pm, and two hours prior to performances.  One hundred tickets per performance date in different seating tiers will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Booz Allen is a proud presenting sponsor of the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance’s Military Appreciation Program,” said Rick Holley, Vice-President, Booz Allen Hamilton.  “Our support of this program is in keeping with the firm’s commitment to help organizations and community initiatives that benefit our nation’s active-duty military and veterans.”

The Military Appreciation Program continues this February as Conductor Neal Gittleman and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra celebrate the music of French composers with The Premier Health Classical Concert Series program Reflections of France and The Demirjian Classical Connections Series Concert Camille Saint-Saëns and His Organ Symphony.  For dance fans, Dayton Ballet will deliver a beautiful repertory show, including a World Premiere Ballet, in Diversity in Dance.  The young and the young-at-heart will enjoy Dayton Opera’s presentation of Engelbert Humperdinck’s classic opera Hansel & Gretel, in conjunction with the magical Zoot Theatre Company and Dayton Ballet II Senior Company.  This beloved fairytale will be brought to life on stage with dancers, puppets, amazing singers, and a sophisticated score, filled with beautiful and favorite melodies.

In March, the DPO’s Kettering Health Network SuperPops Series welcomes Arturo Sandoval to the stage for an evening of Latin-flavored jazz music from an internationally acknowledged guardian of the jazz trumpet and flugal horn.  Next, The DPO proudly presents its Classical Concert Stories and Dreams with narration from Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson.  Ms. Cartwright will also join the DPO for a DP&L Foundation Family Series Concert entitled Musical Fables and Tales that same weekend.  For those who like to rock, the DPO Rockin’ Orchestra joins the rock ensemble Jeans ‘n Classics to present Women of Rock.  DPO then returns to its roots with a Classical program featuring one of the favorite composers of all time in Mozart’s Legacy, and a One Call Now Symphony Sundaes performance of Mozart & Beethoven, complete with a scoop of Graeters ice-cream to top off the afternoon.  Then, Dayton Ballet lights up the Victoria once again with New Directions, a repertory show with four pieces, including one from internationally acclaimed Choreographer Jessica Lang and a treasure from our very own Karen Russo Burke with her beautiful Canyons.  Finally, The DPO will perform an additional Family Concert in March entitled BUGS!, where the Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and the Dayton Ballet II will join forces and go downright, well, buggy.

In April, DPO promises “Oh What A Night” with its SuperPops Concert by the same name, visiting Billboard Hits of the 1960’s.  DPO then performs its very last Symphony Sundaes Concert Mozart & the Romantics, where a scoop of Graters serves as the very sweetest way to end this Concert and this Series.  In May, DPO joins together with the Human Race Company for the SuperPops Concert Best of Broadway: Stars of the Human Race. It’s Broadway’s best, performed by Dayton’s best.  Conductor Neal Gittleman, the DPO and the DPO chorus then conclude this season’s Classical Concert Series with Beethoven’s Great Ninth.

Finally, in June, DPO Rockin’ Orchestra brings the DPAA 2013-2104 Signature Season to a close with The Music of Journey.  Faithfully—A Symphonic Tribute to the Music of Journey and the DPO together celebrate the music of Journey like never before, making it an unforgettable night or music.

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, it is 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 also the proud recipient of a 12-13 season grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
