WE WILL ROCK YOU vocalists and rock band
RICHARD SIDWELL guest conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Since 2002 over 15 million theatregoers in 17 countries have been thrilled by this awe-inspiring performance which is based on the songs of Queen with a book by Ben Elton (The Young Ones, Blackadder, Popcorn).

Elton fashioned this hilarious futurist comedy around more than 24 of Queen’s biggest hit songs including We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and of course, We Will Rock You.

WE WILL ROCK YOU reflects the scale and spectacle that marked Queen’s live performances and earned the band its pinnacle position in rock history. With Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor as music supervisors and “a band without parallel in the theatre” behind the cast, the audience can expect WE WILL ROCK YOU to rock as fiercely as the best of Queen’s concerts.

“Drawing together musical theatre performers to present this concert, the iconic music is presented with a wonderful emotion and connection not always seen in pop singers taking on other people's work. The concert that features over 20 of Queen's famous songs is presented with heart, energy and humour and the singers clearly enjoy themselves and connect to the music to not just sing, but rather, tell the stories that are embedded in the incredibly detailed and clever lyrics that have helped ensure that Queen still has a strong following, as evidenced by the full house and audience participation.”
—Broadway World

HIGDON "river sings a song to trees" from City Scape
MENDELSSOHN Piano Concerto No. 1
MOZART Symphony No. 41, "Jupiter"  

MEI-ANN CHEN guest conductor | GAVIN GEORGE piano
 
Mozart penned his first composition at age 5, Mendelssohn at 12. For the May Masterworks we not only present works from these early bloomers but also host the amazing wunderkind, Gavin George. At a mere 13 years old, he takes the piano by storm as you will witness when Gavin joins your DPO to perform Mendelssohn’s lyrical Piano Concerto No. 1. We welcome conductor Mei-Ann Chen to our stage. She is Music Director of the Chicago Sinfonietta since 2011 and Artistic Director and Conductor for the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra Summer Festival.

Mei-Ann and your DPO begin with Jennifer Higdon’s “river sings a song to trees.” This is the second movement of City Scape, a piece commissioned in 2002 by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

Felix Mendelssohn first performed piano on stage at the age of nine. Our soloist, Gavin George, made his symphonic debut when he was just seven! Since then, George has performed with American symphony orchestras and at the Perugia Music Festival in Italy. He has won the SAA International Piano Concerto Competition and two gold medals at the International Piano Competition of the American Association for the Development of the Gifted and Talented.

We close with Mozart’s penultimate symphony… the “Jupiter.” Always striving for the perfection of the symphonic form, in the summer of 1788, Mozart found it. From June through August, the composer wrote his three final symphonies, 39 through 41. At the time, Mozart was in distress. His wife was ill, he was in debt and unable to obtain a position that would supply steady commissions. Yet, Mozart wrote three brilliant symphonies in six weeks. His final, Symphony No. 41, still towers over classical literature as a work of rare perfection and soaring emotion.

Carmen’s seductive, she’s elusive, she’s a danger to your heart. And best of all, she’s irresistibly tuneful. Poor Don José. Poised to marry Micaela, the hometown “good girl” whom his mother approves, he topples like a giant oak in a storm when the fiery gypsy sets her laser sights on the hapless corporal. Don José doesn’t give in without a struggle, and neither does pure-hearted Micaela, who dares to search for her love in the mountainous gypsy smugglers’ lair.

But who can resist Carmen’s seductive Seguidilla or her inviting, tempestuous Habanera?

Certainly not Don José, and definitely not the generations of audiences who have made Georges Bizet’s masterpiece one of the most frequently performed operas ever.
