The Dayton Philharmonic was founded in 1933 and over the course of it’s over 75 year history, has distinguished itself as one of Dayton’s longest standing cultural institutions. The pride of the “Gem City,” DPO performs under the baton of Music Director Neal Gittleman, bringing adventurous programming and fine musicianship to its nearly numerous patrons (including it’s over 50,000 school-age listeners). During the course of its season, DPO performs a Classical series; the Connections series, which seeks to connect the dots between Baroque, Classical and Romantic eras; “SuperPops,” a pops series; “Rockin’ Orchestra,” a rock series; “Symphony Sundaes,” featuring short, Sunday afternoon programs; and a Family series. Subscriptions are available to all series for a discount off of regular single ticket prices.
