“Musical Mysteries” is theme of November 11 concert

Dayton, Ohio (October 28, 2008) – On Tuesday, November 11, Assistant Conductor Patrick Reynolds, Narrator Bruce Cromer, and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will present the DPO’s Young People’s Concert, Musical Mysteries. The DPO specifically designed this concert for school-age audiences and planned it to link to Social Studies and Language Arts curriculum.

Fantasy and mystery run through this concert. Students will become “musical detectives,” as they learn to uncover the secrets and hidden messages of music. At 9:30 am and 11:10 am at the Schuster Center, the DPO will unravel the mystery. The DPO will begin the concert with Mozart’s Magic Flute Overture. Music from Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets (Williams-Whitney) is next. The program concludes with Stookey’s The Composer is Dead.    

It's one of the DPO's longest-standing traditions. The DPO plans these concerts to integrate with classroom curriculum. Teachers receive a study guide and a CD of concert excerpts. Study guides are also available at At no charge, docents (if available) visit the various schools to prepare students for the concert.

Tickets: Subscription (All 3 Young People’s Concerts) $13.50 per seat
Single Concert; $4.75 per seat
