Posted on: September 11, 2020

The Dayton Philharmonic, Dayton Opera, and Dayton Ballet—the constituent organizations of Ohio’s Dayton Performing Arts Alliance—will perform in a virtual event on September 12 entitled “A Celebration from Carillon Historical Park.” The 8 p.m. event will feature ensemble and solo performances by musicians from the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. Dayton Opera singer Maya Vansuch will perform two works accompanied by DPO string quintets. There will also be a replay of an excerpt from the Dayton Ballet’s recent production of The Great Gatsby. Carillon Historical Park is a 65-acre open-air museum that chronicles Dayton’s history. For the September 12 performance, musicians, and artists will perform in the James F. Dicke Family Transportation Center, which features historic vehicles. They will also perform in the Eichelberger Pavilion overlooking the park grounds. Repertoire will include Dvořák’s American Quartet for strings, Gabrieli’s Canzon Duodecimi Toni for brass, and Barber’s Adagio for Strings. Vansuch will perform “O mio babbino caro” and “America the Beautiful” with string musicians from the DPO. Additional solo performances will feature percussionist Michael LaMattina, harpist Leslie Stratton, and trumpeter Charles Pagnard. For more, visit the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance website.
