DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Pops orchestras throughout the country have one very influential person to thank . . . Arthur Fiedler.

The Boston Pops has often been called “America’s Orchestra”; perhaps this makes Arthur Fiedler “America’s Conductor.” Whether or not this is true, it is certainly true that Fiedler and the Pops are often considered the standard that other Pops orchestras have followed. Fiedler spent nearly five decades (1930–1979) leading the Boston Pops. As a conductor, he wished for good music to be shared and heard by all and thus started the Esplanade Concerts, a free outdoor summer concert series. He believed that if libraries could provide literature for free, then there should be a place for musical literature to be enjoyed for free. These concerts eventually led to Boston’s famous Fourth of July concert that still exists today. Come celebrate the life and work of this gentle conductor with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra’s performance of some of Fiedler’s favorites, including “Jalousie,” “Moon River,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” and, of course, “Stars and Stripes Forever.”

"I believed people should have an opportunity to enjoy fine music." (Arthur Fiedler) . . . It is certainly going to be an evening of very fine music; you won’t want to miss it!
