DAYTON, OH (December 13, 2011) – A Dayton New Year’s Eve tradition will continue on Saturday, December 31, 2011 at 8 p.m. in the Schuster Center, as the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and Music Director Neal Gittleman present the Annual New Year’s Eve Celebration Concert.
This year’s theme is “Paris to Vienna.” Neal and the orchestra will transport you between two great continental European capitals with a joyful journey of music right from your seat in the Mead Theatre. Celebration and fun are on the itinerary via light classics, virtuosic solos, and festive favorites.
Friendly prices, complimentary champagne at intermission, and a balloon drop at concert’s close are all part of the DPO New Year’s Eve tradition. The concert ends around 10:00 p.m. with plenty of time for your party at home or out and about town. In addition to the concert festivities, the DPO will unveil its new 2012-2013 season just prior to intermission.
Featured soloist for the 2011 New Year’s Eve Concert will be Jessica Hung, Concertmaster of the DPO, who will perform two popular works for violin and orchestra: Massenet’s Méditation from Thaïs and Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen.
