DAYTON, OH (July 31, 2013) -- Chorus auditions for the choirs of the Dayton Philharmonic will be held at Wright State University’s Creative Arts Center on Monday, August 19, from 5 to 9 p.m. To schedule an audition time, contact Amy Vaubel at or (937) 427-2986.

 “Singing with this chorus is a wonderful opportunity to perform under the direction of Dayton Philharmonic’s Artistic Director and Conductor Neal Gittleman and Dayton Philharmonic Chorus Director Hank Dahlman,” said Vaubel, DPO Chorus Manager. “Our mission is to serve as part of the orchestra during the regular subscription season and performing choral-orchestral works at the highest level possible.” 

The Choirs of the Dayton Philharmonic include the Orchestra Chorus, the Chamber Choir and the Festival Chorus and comprise the choral performance ensembles of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. 

This season’s performances include the Orchestra Chorus performing the “Prelude to Mephistopheles” by Arrigo Boito and the finale from Candide by Leonard Bernstein in the “Season Opening Spectacular” on September 21 and 22; Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 2 on November 1 and 2; and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 on May 16 and 17, all in the Schuster Center. Dayton Philharmonic Chamber Choir will perform Handel’s Messiah, December 22 at Westminster Presbyterian Church.

 “It’s an excellent experience for anyone who has a love of singing and has been looking to expand their musical knowledge,” said chorus member Michelle Jordan. “You have the thrill of performing on the Schuster stage with incredible musicians performing challenging works and to be a part of a true community chorus, representing the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance at performances throughout the year.”

Complete audition information -- including free music score downloads -- is available at


About the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance
The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance was formed in July 2012 as the result of a groundbreaking and innovative merger between the Dayton Ballet, the Dayton Opera, and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. Together, they are the largest performing arts organization in the community, offering a tremendous variety of performance and education programs and setting a new standard for artistic excellence.  Dayton Performing Arts Alliance performances are made possible in part by Montgomery County and Culture Works, the single largest source of community funds for the arts and culture in the Miami Valley. The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance also receives partial funding from the Ohio Arts Council, a state agency created to foster and encourage the development of the arts and to preserve Ohio's cultural heritage. Funding from the Ohio Arts Council is an investment of state tax dollars that promotes economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohio residents.  The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is proud to be one of five performing arts organizations in the country selected to receive a three-year "Music Alive" grant from New Music USA and the League of American Orchestras.
