DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Our Vista this month comes from across the Atlantic as the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance invites Eileen Ivers, master of the Irish fiddle, to join the DPO for an evening of Celtic music and tradition.

A daughter of Irish immigrants who was raised in New York City, Eileen Ivers started playing fiddle at a young age, eventually winning the All-Ireland fiddle championships . . . nine times! She graduated magna cum laude from Iona College with a degree in mathematics. However, while pursuing post-graduate studies in mathematics, she delved further into diverse genres of music. Ivers has since established herself as a preeminent fiddler. The Grammy award winner has performed for U.S. presidents and royalty, and the New York Times has called her “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin.” She has performed with more than 40 symphonic orchestras and at many renowned folk festivals. Ivers’ newest CD “showcases how Irish music and dance have integrated with various roots music of North America.”

Get out of the February cold and into the warm hearth of music that will envelop the Schuster in Celtic Spirit!

Gilbert and Sullivan’s rollicking comedy centers on the romantic misadventures of Mabel and Frederic, who was mistakenly apprenticed to a band of “reluctant” pirates. Add to that a very model of a modern Major-General, his bevy of beautiful daughters, and a bungling bunch of Keystone Cops–style police, and you have the delightfully wacky operetta that has amused audiences since its 1879 debut. 

Twists and turns abound, interspersed with some of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most delightful melodies. Who could remain unmoved when Frederic woos his future bride with “Oh! Is there not one maiden breast?" Certainly not Mabel, who offers Frederic hope with "Poor wand'ring one."

Set sail with the jolliest group of pirates to swab a stage! It’s a voyage perfect for the whole family!

Often called “America’s composer,” John Williams has been creating movie music since 1959. Over the years, Williams has won 24 Grammy Awards and has been nominated 51 times for an Academy Award, winning the coveted statue five times over the years. His staggering number of Academy nods makes him the second-most nominated individual for the Oscar, next to none other than Mr. Walt Disney himself. The soundtrack for Star Wars (Episode IV) is the best-selling score-only soundtrack of all time, and, in fact, Williams has composed the soundtrack for eight of the twenty highest-grossing films at the U.S. box office. To say that John Williams has had a great influence on the very fabric of American culture over the last 60 years is an understatement! And when he is not composing music for the films that fill our minds and our hearts with unforgettable memories, Williams still serves as the Conductor Laureate for the impeccable Boston Pops. 

This March, the Williams musical magic continues here in Dayton as Neal Gittleman and the Dayton Philharmonic prepare a Pops performance that pays tribute to even more music from this Hollywood legend. This time, the journey continues through additional blockbuster films and franchises spanning the last several decades. From Superman to Close Encounters of the Third Kind to Raiders of the Lost Ark to Hook to Harry Potter, the DPO will take us for a rousing ride through a movie-music wonderland. And no evening saluting John Williams would be complete with a sensational serving of the iconic music from the Star Wars saga.

So sit back, relax, and let us entertain you with the Best of John Williams II. Although there may not be popcorn served at the Schuster, you’ll certainly feel as though you’ve spent a night at the movies!

DAYTON PHILHARMONIC YOUTH ORCHESTRA

The Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra invites the Platypus Theatre Company to the Schuster Center, where together they will introduce concertgoers both young and young-at-heart to the magical world of classical music.

The Platypus Theatre Company has set out on a mission to create the next generation of classical music lovers. In partnership with visionary orchestras like the DPYO, they give young audiences the opportunity to explore music on a deeper level. Young audiences learn the power of creativity and self-empowerment while exploring musical eras and forms.

In Bach to the Future, Corky asks her eccentric Uncle Siegfried to help her with her student project on classical music. While poking around in his peculiar workshop, she accidentally combines the ingredients of a magical musical spell, making her tumble through time to meet some of the world’s most fascinating composers. Hopscotching through the ages of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Dvořák and Shostakovich, Corky must discover the secret musical formula that will bring her home. Will she be able to get back to the present and finish her schoolwork in time? Join us for this delightful Family Concert to find out!

TRADITIONAL St. Anthony Chorale

BRAHMS Violin Concerto in D major

HANK DAHLMAN director, DPO Chorus and Chamber Choir WEBSITE   


Audiences wil enjoy a variety of different expressions of Johannes Brahms’ genius, carefully gathered together like a rare collection of precious gemstones. Reflected in the vivid coloration are folk influences and the music of Joseph Haydn. Neal calls on the prodigious skills of the Orchestra alongside choral forces under the direction of Hank Dahlman, Director of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra Chorus and Chamber Choir.

The program opens with a simple but deeply melodic piece, the St. Anthony Chorale, the origins of which are obscured by time but which may have started life as a traditional tune before it found its way into a wind ensemble composition attributed to Haydn. Whatever its origin, it was then picked up by Brahms and used as a theme for his first orchestral work, now known as Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn, also performed on this program. The theme is gorgeous, and the set of variations that Brahms creates are magnificent examples of his art.

Haydn created settings of The Seven Last Words of Christ in many different forms for both orchestra and chorus. Using five choice excerpts, Neal alternates orchestra with a cappella vocals to create a dramatic and compact narrative.

Next on the program we come back to Brahms for two works that explore his marvelous facility with voice.

Brahms' Song of Destiny (Schicksalslied) is one of his finest choral works. It is followed here by what is very probably an expression of love to his dear, lifelong friend Clara Schumann. The texts for Liebeslieder Waltzes are from G. F. Daumer's Polydora, a collection of folk songs and love poems. The previously mentioned Haydn Variations are next, transporting us to one of the most beloved works in all of the classical repertory: Brahms' glorious Violin Concerto in D major.

We have watched our good friend violinist Chad Hoopes grow from amazing prodigy to full-fledged master of his art in just a handful of years. We are proud to say that Neal and the DPO have been more than incidental in helping usher this talented artist to the world stage. Now he is back to take the lead on the Brahms masterpiece, a work that ranks with those of Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, and Bruch as one of The Big Five all-time violin concertos—and rightly so, as it is replete with beautiful melody, rhythmic surprise and heartfelt emotion.

Come join us and peek into this treasure chest of riches.

RYAN SPEEDO GREEN bass-baritone WEBSITE

Ryan Speedo Green has blazed an astounding trail leading from a challenging early life to the great opera stages of the world, including the Metropolitan Opera, the Salzburg Festival, and the Vienna State Opera.

Despite a hard beginning and a stint with juvenile detention at the age of 12, Green graduated with music degrees from Hartt School of Music and Florida State University. Recognition came quickly for the young bass-baritone after his 2011 win at the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. After David Bergner wrote of Green and his inspirational win in The New York Times, HarperCollins expressed interest in publishing his biography, Sing for Your Life: A Story of Race, Music, and Family. Even the book has garnered rave reviews; Publishers Weekly called it “gripping and inspiring,” and soprano Renée Fleming described it as “absolutely riveting.”

Don’t miss your chance to hear this man who has inspired so many and the voice that lifted him to international recognition!
