“Great orchestra”

Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra
Ranked #24 of 64 things to do in Dayton
Attraction details
Reviewed August 30, 2012

We have been attending the DPO for at least eight years. After having moved around the country living in major cities and large towns I was amazed at the fabulous sound the DPO puts out. The music is always well played. I highly recommend the Classical Connections concerts in which the Orchestra director provides historical information and context for different pieces of music - always highly informative and entertaining. The Family Series with the annual Philharmonster concert is also fantastic.

Hearing the DPO in their state-of-art Schuster house makes concert-going a delightful experience. The venue reminds one of the Vienna State Opera House, but has all the creature comforts of the 21st century, including a fantastic orchestra and chorus. And a list of offerings for any taste, classical, jazz, pops, childrens specials. Wow.

The Dayton Philharmonic is one of Dayton's gems...and a sparkling gem at that. This is the perfect way to spend an evening if you're looking for something fun and different to do. It's so well done that, at least in my opinion, it's not like any small town orchestra anywhere.

Don't forget that it's in the heart of Downtown Dayton, which means there are lots of restaurants and stores to visit while you're there. Such a neat place.

Out-of-town friends have attended orchestra performances throughout the world and rate Dayton's equal to many of the best. A true Gem in the Gem City.
