Perhaps the most amazing aspect of Mozart’s final (and possibly most adored) opera, The Magic Flute, is that it communicates on two levels. It is a disarming and comedic portrayal of the trials and rewards of youthful love and companionship and at the same time a symbolic expression of the central principles of the Age of Enlightenment. The Magic Flute is a fable concerning an evil queen and her nemesis, the wise and mystic sorcerer Sarastro, and their relationship with two young initiates, Tamino and Pamina, who have fallen in love.
As we follow the trials of this handsome prince and his newfound paramour, we accompany them on their path and discover what it means to be tested by the fates, learn the lessons of life, and triumph in the end.

Big news! This year, we've added a third Holiday Pops show with a matinee performance in Troy at the Hobart Arena on Sunday.
Perry Como captured an essential meaning of Christmas when he first recorded "There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays" in 1954, in which—among references to the sunshine of a friendly gaze, pumpkin pie, folks traveling from Tennessee to Pennsylvania and vice versa—the most memorable words are "If you want to be happy in a million ways, for the holidays you can’t beat home, sweet home."
This December, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will be joined by local duo Adelee & Gentry for a beautiful celebration of the holiday season. Then choirs from the region will gather together with the DPO for an uplifiting holiday tribute that will have you thrilled that you are "Home for the Holidays" in Dayton… or Troy!
Join us for this festive celebration. Perry Como knew whereof he sang: For the holidays you can’t beat home, sweet home.
Bach's Lunch features the Carillon Brass with an eclectic program that includes jazz standards, brass-specific compositions, transcribed concert music, and traditional holiday favorites.

No Tickets required
The Carillon Brass comprises five top musicians from your own Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra:
Charles Pagnard, Principal Trumpet
Alan Siebert, Second Trumpet
Aaron Brant, Principal Horn
Tim Anderson, Principal Trombone

This traditional downtown recital started as part of an adult concert series created for downtown dwellers and employees. The audience has grown and now draws people of all ages, both within the city limits and from many area communities.
Our donors, Boston Stoker and The Whitney Fund, will provide complimentary coffee and doughnuts at the 10:00 am concert.
Boston’s Bistro & Pub will make box lunches available for purchase at the noon performance.
It's a cultural "freebie" for anyone who loves the holidays and festive music.
See you there!
