Dayton Philanthropy In The Arts

“DPAA Autumn Streams and Holiday Streams give everyone access to live performances by our talented performers in the Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera and Dayton Philharmonic. It is a joy to be performing again. While it is not the same as performing live in-theatre, we are able to share our talents and collaborate on performances that help lift up and inspire our community. If you look at other Ohio cities, there are not many opportunities for musicians to perform or organizations working so hard to take care of their performers. The DPAA virtual streams are essential, not only for the donors and patrons, but also for the musicians and performers. After not being able to perform, our musicians have found a synergy and are truly enjoying collaborating on the internet or in socially distanced face-to-face performances.”
–John Kurokowa, DPO Principal Clarinet

The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is pleased to announce our new Autumn Streams and Holiday Streams so that you can continue to experience your Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera and Dayton Philharmonic from the comfort and safety of your own home. As a result of the pandemic, our venues are still closed or facing restrictions. The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance has had to change and adapt while continuing our vision to transform lives through the power of music and dance. We are doing this by bringing the music to you!

To make this possible, we need you! A group of individual donors have banded together to offer a matching grant challenge to help raise another $50,000 to support our virtual performances. If you support the program now, these donors have committed to match dollar for dollar the first $50,000 raised. Your donation will make Autumn Streams and Holiday Streams possible AND count toward the match.

By supporting Autumn Streams and Holiday Streams, you will be able to continue experiencing great performances like The Dayton Philharmonic Returns!, Beethoven’s 4th, La Traviata, Post Cards from Dayton, Fairytales in Motion and many other virtual streams from our Dayton Philharmonic, Dayton Opera and Dayton Ballet.
The best is yet to come! Your donation can give you access to Autumn Streams and Holiday Streams.

Thank you so much!
Patricia McDonald, President & CEO
