The DPAA’s New Year’s Eve celebration will be a feast for the senses as we take Dayton on a trip to the Bella Italia – the beautiful country of Italy! Prior to the concert, tasty appetizers and sweets will be available for purchase in the Wintergarden, and during intermission, the audience can toast one another with flutes of champagne.  The performance itself will feature the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Artistic Director and Conductor Neal Gittleman, with two outstanding vocalists from Dayton Opera. And, as always, a splash of color ends the evening with a balloon drop at the finale. Celebrate New Year’s Eve a bit early with the festivities running from 8 pm to 10 pm. Afterward, you’ll still have time for another party or to head in time to watch the ball drop. This event has become a Miami Valley favorite…reserve your seats early!
