“Leaping Through Time” is theme of May 13 concert
On Tuesday, May 13, Music Director Neal Gittleman and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will present the DPO’s Young People’s Concert, Leaping Through Time. The DPO specifically designed this concert for school-age audiences and planned it to link to Social Studies and Language Arts curriculum.
At 9:30 am and 11:10 am at the Schuster Center, DPO Music Director Neal Gittleman and the DPO celebrate its 75th Anniversary! Join us in the celebration, as the orchestra performs music that represents various historical periods. Discover how each composition relates to the number 75, and hear trumpeter Kyle Kremer, a senior at Fairmont High School and the talented winner of the 2007 David L. Pierson Young Musicians Concerto Competition, perform.
It’s one of the DPO’s longest-standing traditions. The DPO plans these concerts to integrate with classroom curriculum. Teachers receive a study guide and a CD of concert excerpts. Study guides are also available at http://www.daytonphilharmonic.com/education/fieldtrip/grades3to6. At no charge, docents (if available) visit the various schools to prepare students for the concert.
Tickets: Subscription (All 3 Young People’s Concerts) $13.50 per seat
Single Concert; $4.75 per seat.
