DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA 

Perhaps Perry Como captured the true spirit of Christmas when he first recorded "There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays" in 1954.

This December, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and choirs and choruses from around the region will gather together for an uplifting holiday tribute. Come celebrate a Hometown Holiday with Dayton’s one and only Philharmonic and the guest choirs and choruses as they perform some of the memorable and sacred music of the Christmas season. There’s a good chance that the evening’s joy and song will stay with you throughout the holidays.  

Perry Como had it right...

For the holidays you can’t beat home, sweet home, right here in Dayton.

DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

With magical choreography by Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke, whimsical sets by Ray Zupp, and stunning costumes by Lowell Mathwich, the story of little Clara and her adventures in the Land of Sweets comes to life this holiday season on the Mead Theatre Stage.

The elegance, grace and sheer athleticism of Dayton Ballet's core ensemble and star dancers bring the drama to immediate, colorful life. The Dayton Philharmonic, under the baton of Neal Gittleman, again takes up residence in the orchestra pit, giving Tchaikovsky's music the full, rich interpretation that it requires. Don't miss it.

DAYTON PHILHARMONIC CHAMBER CHOIR Hank Dahlman, director

Some believe that George Frideric Handel allowed opera to influence the composition of Messiah, a theory that seems to enjoy historical confirmation; in Handel’s time, orchestras, soloists, and choirs performed Messiah in theaters more often than in churches.

This work originally spoke to the gospel message of passion and resurrection that is celebrated at Easter. These days, Handel’s Messiah finds eager acceptance at Christmas as well. With no distinguishable characters, the drama relies entirely on the communication of the story of Christ in words, as well as in the powerful, emotionally stirring, and at times heartbreakingly beautiful music of a composer for whom the oratorio proved a personal salvation.
