DAYTON, OH (November 18, 2021) – On Friday, December 10, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon at the Loft Theatre, 126 N. Main St., Third Floor, the Carillon Brass will present Bach’s Lunch, a series of two free holiday concerts. All five members of the Carillon Brass are members of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. This popular holiday tradition is sponsored by the Richard A. and Mary T. Whitney Fund.

The Carillon Brass is thrilled to be back in The Loft Theater to present a favorite Dayton holiday concert affectionately entitled Bach’s Lunch. They are even more excited to be presenting these concerts in front of a live audience once again. This festive program will feature traditional holiday favorites as well as other delightful music for brass instruments, presented in a lighthearted, audience-friendly format. Members of the Carillon Brass are Charles Pagnard, DPO Principal Trumpet; Alan Siebert, DPO Second Trumpet; Sean Vore, DPO French Horn; Chad Arnow, DPO Bass Trombone; and Tim Northcut, DPO Principal Tuba.

NEW THIS YEAR: To ensure the safety of the musicians and our audience members, all audience members will be required to present a ticket in order to be seated in The Loft Theatre this year. These concerts will NOT be standing-room-only performances as they have been in the past. Tickets will be free but must be reserved by visiting https://www.daytonlive.org/events/bachs-lunch/ or by calling the box office at 937-228-3630.

Complimentary coffee from Boston Stoker and donuts from Bill’s Donuts will be available beginning at 9 a.m. when the doors open. Additionally, supporting the DPO and the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance as he has for many years, David Boston will once again have his traditional turkey and cheddar croissant “Bach’s lunches”  available for purchase.

Come listen to some fun, festive music and share in the joy of the holiday season with DPO’s Carillon Brass.
