What To Expect In The 2024-2025 Season

Broadway by Request opens the 2024-25 SuperPops Series. Enjoy a night of your favorite Broadway hits. YOU vote for your most loved Broadway music or song, and Neal Gittleman and the Philharmonic with Broadway Stars perform them live on stage! Hear selections from A Chorus Line, West Side Story, and Phantom of the Opera. Or maybe you’ll choose “Bring Him Home” from Les Misérables or “I Could Have Danced All Night” from My Fair Lady. Grab a ticket and cast your vote! (Nov. 2, 2024; Schuster Center).

Associate Conductor Patrick Reynolds and the Philharmonic continue the 2024 Holiday Season with DPAA’s annual Hometown Holidays concert! Full of sing-alongs, toe-tapping holiday melodies, and traditional carols, this festive concert will have even Ebenezer Scrooge humming a merry tune. (Dec.7, 2024; Schuster Center).

Cast away the winter blues with the ultimate tribute to the legendary crooner Tony Bennett with The Music of Tony Bennett. Arranged for multiple singers, conducted by Associate Conductor Patrick Reynolds, and performed by the Dayton Philharmonic, the concert includes a multi-media display of images and videos from throughout his career. Hits such as “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” “Because of You,” “The Best is Yet to Come,” and more fill the Schuster Center, saluting Bennett’s 60-plus-year career. (Jan 31 and Feb. 1, 2025; Schuster Center).

Next, Neal Gittleman and the Philharmonic shift focus from Broadway and crooners to Hollywood Hits! They’ll present musical selections from some of the world’s greatest films. Melodies from “Gone with the Wind,” “The Magnificent Seven,” “Dr. Zhivago,” “Lawrence of Arabia,” “James Bond,” “The Pink Panther,” “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “Dances with Wolves,” “Ben-Hur,” and many more fill the Schuster Center, showcasing the tremendous talent of the Dayton Philharmonic.

Finish the 2024-25 SuperPops season with Tony-nominated pop/jazz singer-songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway as she joins Neal Gittleman and the Philharmonic on stage for a night of classics made famous by some of the biggest names in the business—Barbra Streisand, Carole King, Patti LuPone, Liza Minnelli, Karrin Allyson, and Michael Feinstein, to name a few! This spellbinding show of rousing showstoppers, exquisite ballads, and lovely symphonic harmonies is a fabulous ending to a super series. (May 3, 2025; Schuster Center)
