DAYTON, OH (September 16, 2019) – On Sunday, October 6 at 3:00 pm at St. Leonard Faith Community Performing Arts Center, 8100 Clyo Road, Centerville, OH 45458, the Dayton Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet will perform “Art and Arpeggios,” a lovely afternoon of music during which fine art is paired with beautiful woodwind music. This concert is free and open to the public.
This performance has been made possible by funding from the City of Centerville and from the Centerville Arts Commission, whose mission is to provide the Centerville Community with access to experience the visual and performing arts in their own hometown.
The Dayton Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet comprises five talented woodwind musicians from the DPO: Rebecca Tryon Andres on flute, Eileen Whalen on oboe, John Kurokawa on clarinet, Jessica Pinkham on horn, and Rachael Young on bassoon. They will present a multimedia presentation that pairs music with paintings, architecture, and sculpture. An array of art is matched with musical selections appropriate for each of the works of art. Art images are projected and briefly discussed, followed by a related musical selection played by the Dayton Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet. “Art & Arpeggios” features the art of Michelangelo, Van Gogh, and Chagall, with music by Mozart, Respighi, and Shostakovich.

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.
