DAYTON OH (December 20, 2011) – The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2011-2012 Miami Valley & Good Samaritan Hospitals Classical Series will continue with programs titled Musical Gallery as its first concerts of the new year on Friday and Saturday, January 6 & 7, 2012, both performances at 8 p.m. at the Schuster Center.
The wide-ranging program will feature a work by American composer Stella Sung titled Rockwell Reflections.
