NCR Corporation, National Endowment for the Arts assistance allows DPO to offer special festival subscription pricing
Due to the generous assistance of NCR Corporation and the National Endowment for the Arts, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will launch its 2007-2008 season with a special festival devoted to composers who best express the American ethos and sonic landscape. Known as the NCR Made in America Festival, all concerts in which the DPO’s Music Director Neal Gittleman will conduct, the festival features six concerts – one each in the Dayton Daily News Classical Connections, National City SuperPops, Demirjian Chamber Explorations, and Special Events and two in the Classical series.
Starting July 5, the DPO will offer a special subscription rate for the NCR Made in America Festival, which runs through the September and October concert period and features the works of such American composers as Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Howard Hanson, and Charles Ives, to name just a few. The festival concerts/dates are:
Classical Concert, American Panorama, September 14 and 15
Special Event, American Iconoclast: Chamber Music of George Crumb, September 19
Chamber Concert, Modern & More, October 3 and 4
Classical Connections Concert, Profile: Bernstein, October 12
Classical Concert, Mosaic Nation, October 11 and 13
Super Pops Concert, Mancini Magic, October 19 and 20.
Aimed at first-time music attendees, the DPO is offering a special package subscription price for any concerts from the six in the NCR Made in America Festival (with a minimum of four concerts required). Subscription prices range from $24 up. There are three seating tiers available. In addition, any current DPO subscriber may purchase any concert in the Festival at ½ off the regular single-ticket price.
