DAYTON PHILHARMONIC BRASS & PERCUSSION PLAYERS


The tradition of brass chamber music harkens back to Mozart’s time. The Salzburg master created many works for ensembles of this kind - then called “Harmonie” bands - for military purposes as well as celebrations for the Royal court. The influence of the music of Turkish Janissaries added percussion such as bass drum, cymbals, and triangle lending an exotic tang and creating a wider sonic spectrum.

Later in the 19th century the brass band grew in popularity in England playing a central role in military and ceremonial settings. In America, the evolution of the modern wind ensemble was further advanced by Frederick Fennel at the Eastman School of Music. This new phase promoted the creation of many new works for the brass ensemble.

For this chamber program, Conductor Patrick Reynolds brings our talented Dayton Philharmonic instrumentalists together for various formations that celebrate the history and sound of the symphonic wind ensemble.

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA


In 1952, when motion picture films were just beginning to brook serious competition from a new technological advancement in entertainment known as television, MGM produced a movie about a time in Hollywood’s history when studios faced a similar problem—the conversion from silent film to “talkies.” The plot: four Hollywood performers must find a way to survive the transition from silent films to sound.

One of the best musicals ever produced, Singin’ in the Rain topped the American Film Institute's 100 Years of Musicals list and ranked fifth in its list of the greatest American films in 2007. And the music featured in this musical comedy was doubtless a major contributing cause. The song list includes "All I Do Is Dream of You," "Beautiful Girl," "Broadway Melody Ballet" (composed of "The Broadway Melody" and "Broadway Rhythm"), "Fit as a Fiddle (And Ready for Love)," "Good Morning," "I Got a Feelin' You're Foolin'," "Make 'Em Laugh," "Moses Supposes," "Should I?" "Singin' in the Rain," "Temptation," "The Wedding of the Painted Doll," "Would You?" "You Were Meant for Me," and "You Are My Lucky Star."

Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra Artistic Director Neal Gittleman will conduct the entire score to the MGM film Singin’ in the Rain as it projects on a large screen above the orchestra, providing orchestral accompaniment to the film with the soundtrack stripped of all orchestral music; only the actors’ dialogue and vocals remain.

Come sing along, or just tap your toes to, with the sounds and sights of one of Hollywood’s all-time best musical films.

DAYTON BALLET & DAYTON PHILHARMONIC


A composer of immense ability, Georges Bizet possessed a special attraction to and talent for the theatrical stage. In his all-too-short 37 years he produced a tremendous amount of significant work, including the operas Carmen and The Pearl Fishers.

Yet neither achieved real success in his lifetime. Now we know and appreciate his individual genius and special touch. The Pearl Fishers was conceived after the youthful composer returned from a joyful trip to Italy. He came back brimming with inspiration.

Those influences found their way into The Pearl Fishers, a stirring tale set in the Ceylon of antiquity. As one might expect, there's a love triangle, irony, torrid emotion, and above all, beautiful melody and singing. Artistic Director Thomas Bankston has carefully selected the cast, matching each perfectly to the role at hand. The ravishing score is performed by the Dayton Philharmonic. As with the DPAA's two other season Signature Events, the Dayton Ballet joins us on stage. Karen Russo Burke's choreography is sure to illustrate the exotic setting and island culture of The Pearl Fishers.
