Composed of students from 28 Greater Dayton Area schools, DPYO presents music of Mozart and one of his greatest fans – Tchaikovsky

On May 14 at 3 pm in the Schuster Center, Patrick Reynolds – Assistant Conductor of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra – will lead the Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra in a program that will showcase the talents and musical abilities of some of the area’s best young musicians.

The program opens with a work by 2006’s most famous birthday boy, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; it’s his Overture to The Magic Flute, an ode to love that is eighteenth century opera in its full splendor. Next, Reynolds leads the DPYO in the performance of a piece by Peter Il’yich Tchaikovsky. A lifelong admirer of Mozart, Tchaikovsky sought to pay tribute to his favorite composer by writing Suite No. 4, op. 61 (Mozartiana) from which the DPYO plays Preghiera.

The program ends with more Tchaikovsky, his Symphony No. 2, op. 17, (Little Russian), in which Tchaikovsky employed folk material in each of the work’s four movements, more than in any other of his orchestral compositions, causing the piece to emerge as one of the brightest moments in his entire output.

“The DPYO is an orchestra that our entire region can be proud of,” Reynolds states. “Its high quality says tremendous things about the state of music education in the Greater Dayton Area.”
