Posted on: April 19, 2016

Ohio’s Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will perform at the Calvary Missionary Baptist Church on April 24 in the first of three free Stained Glass Series Concerts this season. Guest conductor Isaac Selya, founder and artistic director of Queen City Chamber Opera in Cincinnati, will lead the Dayton Philharmonic, vocalist William Henry Caldwell, and the host church choir at each venue in performances of “The Trumpet Shall Sound” from Handel’s Messiah, “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” and Haydn’s Symphony No. 101 (“Clock”). Dayton Philharmonic Artistic Director Neal Gittleman will serve as master of ceremonies, and Calvary’s Minister of Music, Joshua Washington, will direct Richard Smallwood’s “Trust Me” to close the concert. The second and third Stained Glass concerts this season are set for June 5 at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Dayton and June 12 at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Trotwood. The series is part of the orchestra’s Norma Ross Memorial Community Concerts.
