DAYTON, OH (February 12, 2010) – The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and Graeter’s Ice Cream will launch a new concert series, the Graeter’s Symphony Sundaes Series, with a performance on Sunday, February 21, 2010 at 3 p.m. in the Scottish Rite Auditorium of the Dayton Masonic Center. Neal Gittleman, Music Director of the DPO, will conduct.
The Symphony Sundaes series is designed to offer a new, family-friendly series to the DPO’s annual concert lineup. Priced as low as $30 for all three concerts, the series will bring the DPO and conductor Neal Gittleman to the intimate space of the Scottish Rite Auditorium at the Masonic Center to perform works from the great classical masters. Each program in the 2010 series will feature an opening overture and a light concerto, climaxing with a full symphony. The programs will be performed without intermission and will last about 85 minutes each.
There’s plenty of free parking available, and each concert will be followed by an ice cream social with the musicians, featuring a complimentary scoop of Graeter’s ice cream for each concertgoer.

The debut program on February 21 will feature trumpet soloist Charles Pagnard, principal trumpet of the DPO, performing the Trumpet Concerto by Franz Joseph Haydn. The program will open with Mozart’s Overture to Don Giovanni and conclude with Beethoven’s much-loved Symphony No. 7.
Other concerts in the 2010 series include the Mozart Symphony Sundae on March 28, 2010 (Beethoven: Coriolan Overture, Bach: Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, Mozart: Symphony No. 40) and the Schubert Symphony Sundae on May 2, 2010 (Mendelssohn: Overture: The Hebrides, Mozart: Horn Concerto No. 4, with the DPO’s new Principal Horn, Rob Johnson, Schubert: Symphony No. 5). All three performances are on Sunday afternoons at 3 p.m. in the Scottish Rite Auditorium of the Dayton Masonic Center.
