This is the perfect way to start your new Years festivities... wonderful orchestra, great dancers from the Dayton Ballet, impressive baritone soloist.. and in incomparable, clever and witty conductor Neal Gittelman, who makes the evening festive, with unexpected highlights, a champagne toast at intermission and all the glory of the Schuster Center. It is becoming more and more the place... More

We love the pops series every year - love the rock and roll - they tend to ad the unbelievelby good Canadian musicians who have voices to match every singer you know, to do the voals on these rocka nd roll performances, so there is not only great music but great vocals. The Shuster is an acoustical wonder on its... More

A great way to spend the evening relaxing and listening to the dayton philharmonic orchestra at the Shuster center. The Shuster center is new and the sound is awesome.

The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra is a high quality orchestra that compares favorable with orchestras from much larger cities such as Cincinnati, Cleveland, Chicago, St. Louis, etc. Under the leadership of Neal Gittelman who has been the conductor for 18 years, this orchestra has achieved a quality in performance that is truly amazing.

I grew up with the arts in Chicago, where the symphony was a central part of my lifestyle. The performing artists in Dayton are world-class. I have yet to be disappointed. Neil Gittelman is superb! The music is always uplifting. We had season tickets last year and plan on having them again this year.

This orchestra is just lovely. They really put their all into their performances and I enjoy seeing them coupled with another beautiful art form such as opera or ballet. If you haven't seen the DPO, you should absolutely see them one day soon!!

I am not a music critic by any means, but this orchestra performs their hearts out onstage. And one reason would seem to be artistic director and conductor, Neal Gittleman. He leads them well and entertains the audience at the same time - a rather unique talent. For instance... at the recent performance of Super Pops, Billboard HIts of the... More
