DAYTON, OH (September 16, 2015) – The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is pleased to continue 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 two pairs of free tickets per military household to be chosen from a variety of performances from the 2015-2016 Ascend Season, with one pair to be used between September and December 2015 and one pair to be used between January and May 2016.  Military personnel may choose from 55 different 2015-2016 Ascend Season performances listed below. Sponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton, the program has dedicated a total of 4,100 complimentary tickets to performances of the Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera and Dayton Philharmonic.  For more information, go to www.daytonperformingarts.org/military.

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

“Booz Allen is a proud presenting sponsor of the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance’s Military Appreciation Program,” said Rick Holley, Senior 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.”

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.
