DAYTON, OH (February 24, 2020) – On Saturday, March 21, 2020 at 8 pm in the Mead Theatre of the Schuster Center, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of guest conductor Brent Havens, will present the fifth concert in the 2019–2020 Dayton Freight Rockin’ Orchestra Series, The Music of the Rolling Stones: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards 1969.

One of the most indelible rock groups in history, the Rolling Stones were formed in 1962 in London, England and have been together nearly 60 years. Ranked number four of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” by Rolling Stone Magazine, the Stones have sold over 200 million albums worldwide and counting. They have toured the globe together, delivering spectacular performances to sold-out venues, and their momentum continues; today they are back on the road with their No Filter Tour 2020! The Rolling Stones certainly have earned their nickname as the “World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band.”

Conductor, arranger, and producer Brent Havens and his Windborne Music Rock Symphony shows present some of the most exciting classic-rock symphony shows in the country. Havens’ masterful combination of orchestral arrangements with a full rock band, featuring an incredible rhythm section, talented background singers, and a world-class sound and light show, deliver the greatest hits of legendary bands like never before seen or heard. The combination of classic rock and symphonic orchestra is a force that takes the hits of these legendary bands to the next level.

This March, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and Windborne, under the direction of conductor Brent Havens, proudly present The Music of The Rolling Stones: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards 1969. This exciting Rockin’ Orchestra concert celebrates the 50th Anniversary of The Rolling Stones’ legendary albums Beggar’s Banquet and Let It Bleed. This mind-blowing performance will feature tracks from these two Stones staples, including “Sympathy for the Devil,” “Street Fighting Man,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Midnight Rambler,” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” The night will also include other classic hits from The Rolling Stones’ ABKCO years, including “Let’s Spend the Night Together,” “Brown Sugar,” “Ruby Tuesday” and more!

No matter your age, you’ll feel the rush of a generation in rebellion and history in the making. “Let’s Spend the Night Together” at the Schuster Center celebrating “The World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band”: The Rolling Stones!

About the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance
The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance was formed in July 2012 as the result of a groundbreaking and innovative merger between the Dayton Ballet, the Dayton Opera, and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. Together, they are the largest performing arts organization in the community, offering a tremendous variety of performance and education programs and setting a new standard for artistic excellence.  Dayton Performing Arts Alliance performances are made possible in part by Montgomery County and Culture Works, the single largest source of community funds for the arts and culture in the Miami Valley. The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance also receives partial funding from the Ohio Arts Council, a state agency created to foster and encourage the development of the arts and to preserve Ohio’s cultural heritage. Funding from the Ohio Arts Council is an investment of state tax dollars that promotes economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohio residents. In 2013, The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance was thrilled to be one of five performing arts organizations in the country selected to receive a three-year “Music Alive” grant from New Music USA and the League of American Orchestras. The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is the proud recipient of a 2017-2018 Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
