DAYTON OH (September 24, 2010) – The Grammy-award winning couple of Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr. will open the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2010-2011 Kettering Health Network SuperPops Series on Friday and Saturday, October 8 & 9, at 8 p.m. both nights at the Schuster Center.

As lead vocalists of the smash 60s group The 5th Dimension, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr. recorded such classics as “Up, Up & Away,” “Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In,” “Wedding Bell Blues,” “One Less Bell to Answer,” “Stoned Soul Picnic,” and other well-known hits. After a decade with The 5th Dimension, they established themselves as a duo and had an immediate success with the single, “You Don’t Have To Be A Star (To Be In My Show).” The song was a #1 hit and earned them a Grammy for Best R&B Vocal Performance By a Duo or Group. They went on to further success in recording and on television, including Marilyn’s five years as host of the popular 1980s music program, “Solid Gold.”

Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr. will join with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Neal Gittleman to perform all their chart-topping songs. To open the program, Neal and the DPO will join with three vocalists from the USAF Band of Flight – MSgt Shawn Stanley, TSgt Felita Rowe, and SSgt Terra Mason – to perform a variety of music inspired by flight. “Up, Up & Away” indeed!

Tickets for the concerts range from $26 – $76 and are available by calling (888) 228-3630 or by ordering on the web at www.daytonphilharmonic.com.
