We bought tickets to DPO last year to check it out and at intermission promptly bought season tickets for the 2015-16 season. We were that impressed. As the season has come to a close, we continue to... More

What a wonderful orchestra! They teamed up with the Dayton Ballet for Romeo and Juliet and it was a real treat! I cant wait to listen to them again. The conductor was lively and able to answer any questions before and after the show. Loved our time!

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
