Patrick Reynolds conducts program marking first appearance of DPYO in Troy
On Friday, April 20 at 7:30 pm, the Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra under the direction of DPO Assistant Conductor Patrick Reynolds will make its first appearance ever in Troy at the Hobart Arena.
The program presents a cross-section of classical and theatrical musical styles, beginning with Jacques Offenbach’s Overture to La Belle Helene. The first movement of Franz Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony No. 8 follows. The balance of the classical music portion consists of Antonin Dvo?ák’s Slavonic Dance No. 7, Charles Gounod’s March of the Marionette, and the finale of Amilcare Ponchelli’s Dance of the Hours.
The theatrical musical offerings include Aaron Copland’s Saturday Night Dance and Hoe-down from Rodeo and concludes with John Williams’s Flying Theme from E.T. and music from Star Wars.
“When the Troy Mayors’ Concerts, Inc. was approached to sponsor this concert,” Bruce George of TMCI states, “we felt it was a unique opportunity to give back to the community that has supported the Troy Mayors’ Concerts for what will be the fifteenth year this coming August nineteenth.”
Doors open at 7 pm. Parking is free, and the Hobart Arena is handicapped-accessible.
