Memorial Day weekend event to feature musical tribute to America and free admission to all Carillon Park historical buildings
The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and Carillon Park will present a good, old-fashioned Memorial Day weekend celebration. On Sunday, May 28 at 5 pm, under the leadership of Music Director Neal Gittleman the DPO will offer a varied program of vivid, American music that starts with Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, includes works by mostly American composers, patriotic songs and marches, an homage to America’s favorite pastime – baseball – as well as ragtime and Broadway tunes and ending with two perennial patriotic favorites, Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and John Phillip Sousa’s The Stars & Stripes Forever.
While there, guests are encouraged to visit the Park’s 25 historical buildings and interact with the exhibits. It’s a great way to learn about the area’s history and heritage, and – for Sunday, May 28 ONLY – admission to the buildings is FREE. Gates open at 12 noon.
