Annual Magic Carpet Concerts scheduled for March 2, and March 5 through 9 at 9:45 am for preschoolers and 11:00 am for kids in primary grades

The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and Associate Conductor Patrick Reynolds hit area highways the first part of March, to bring the joy, excitement, and fun of music to area school-age kids.

Known as Magic Carpet Concerts, the DPO might also call these five scheduled musical events Getting Down with the Phil, for getting down and performing orchestral music in a casual and fun manner is the essence of each program. The DPO promises to have your kids singing and clapping with the orchestra. In fact, orchestra members might catch you tapping a toe, too.

The musical program, entitled The Philharmonic Sings, Dances, and Marches, features marches by Strauss, Gounod, and Sousa; songs by Grainger as well as traditional melodies, and dances by Delibes, Anderson, and Gliere. The Entre’acte Et Valse from Delibes’s Coppelia features dancers from Gem City Ballet, Barbara Pontecorvo, Director.

The Magic Carpet ride begins on Friday, March 2 at Ginghamsburg Church. Then, the DPO will visit Salem Church of God (Monday, March 5), Christian Life Center (Tuesday, March 6), Temple Israel (Wednesday, March 7), Southminster Presbyterian (Thursday, March 8), and Wright State University (Friday, March 9). Concert times are 9:45 am for Preschool kids and 11:00 am for kids in the primary grades. Cost for each concert is $3.75 per person. Of course, parents and the young-at-heart are also invited.
