Dayton Philharmonic’s world tour of a season

Posted on: January 12, 2010

In Sunday’s (1/10) Dayton Daily News (Ohio), Khalid Moss writes, “Music—like books, visual art and film—has the power to whisk you to an amazing place without ever leaving your perch. That magical power is the muse behind the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2010-11 ‘Voyages Season’ officially announced at the orchestra’s annual New Year’s Eve concert at Schuster Center, Thursday, Dec. 31, 2009. … The Philharmonic’s 2010-11 concert season reads like a global travel brochure. The Miami Valley and Good Samaritan Classical Series—‘Classical Passages’—begins Sept. 23 with a trip to Finland for the Sibelius Violin Concerto in D Minor featuring guest violinist Vadim Gluzman. After a stop in Poland to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Chopin’s birth with pianist Janina Fialkowska, the orchestra takes an extended tour through the major music capitals of Europe only to circle back to the U.S. on May 13 for Leonard Bernstein’s ‘Mass: A Theatre Piece for Singers, Players and Dancers.’ … New additions to the philharmonic lineup include the Symphony Sundaes Series at the Dayton Masonic Center and Rockin’ Orchestra Series celebrating the music of The Eagles, The Beatles and Led Zeppelin respectively.”
