DAYTON OH (Sept 30, 2010) – The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2010-2011 Miami Valley & Good Samaritan Hospitals Classical Series will continue with Mozart’s Eternal Requiem on Friday and Saturday, October 15 & 16, 2010, both performances at 8 p.m. at the Benjamin and Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center.
As a prelude to this program, the DPO will offer a screening of the 8-time Academy Award winning film Amadeus on Sunday, October 3 at 3:00 at the Dayton Masonic Center. The screening is free to all DPO Subscribers, holders of Mozart Requiem tickets and Dayton Masons.
Joining the DPO for Mozart’s Requiem will be the DPO Chorus, under the direction of Hank Dahlman, and soloists Lynne Giacalone Church, soprano; Kathleen Clawson, mezzo soprano; Randall Black, tenor; and William Henry Caldwell, baritone.
In addition to the sublime Requiem – Mozart’s final work, and among his most profound and inspiring – the concerts will also include the fanfare Tromba Lontana, by American composer John Adams, and the symphony Mathis der Maler by German composer Paul Hindemith. Patrick Reynolds, Assistant Conductor of the DPO, will conduct the Adams and Hindemith works, while Hank Dahlman, Director of the DPO Chorus, will conduct the Mozart Requiem.
The DPO’s 10-11 Classical Series promises a “Voyage” of discovery. Each composer is on a quest; each composition evokes a time and place. This season’s concerts will take the listener from Mozart’s Vienna to the steppes of Central Asia (Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances, March 11-12) to a quilt-making community in rural Alabama (Daugherty’s Gee’s Bend, March 24-26).
Tickets for the concerts of October 15 & 16 range from $9 – $59 and are available by calling (888) 228-3630 or by ordering on the web at www.daytonphilharmonic.com.
The Dayton Philharmonic’s 2010-2011 Classical Series is sponsored by Miami Valley & Good Samaritan Hospitals.
