DAYTON, OHIO (January 6, 2014) – Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra members will travel to Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, 2067 N. Gettysburg Avenue in Dayton on Sunday, January 26, 2014 at 5 pm, to celebrate the human spirit through the universal medium of music with the second Stained Glass Concert of the Dayton Philharmonic 2013-2014 Signature season. The concert will combine the DPO with the host church choir and soloists, featuring soprano Minnita Daniel-Cox, for an uplifting experience. The concerts are free and open to the public with no ticket required.

This season’s Stained Glass Concert program features Mozart’s Symphony No. 31 and Haydn’s Il Mondo della Luna Overture (The World on the Moon). Mozart’s piece, better known as the Paris Symphony, is one of his most famous symphonies and Haydn’s overture is from his opera buffa or comic opera of the same title. The DPO will also perform the first movement of important American composer Will Grant Still’s Danzas de Panama (Dances of Panama). Still is the first African-American to conduct a major American symphony and had a successful career including arranging music for movies.

The DPO will hold this season’s final Stained Glass Concert on Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 4 pm at Tabernacle Baptist Church, 380 South Broadway Street in Dayton.

Each concert is part of the DPO’s Stained Glass Series of concerts in community churches, which themselves are part of a series of community outreach efforts called the Norma Ross Memorial Community Concerts in honor of the late Mrs. Norma Ross, a tireless advocate for music and minority youth. All Stained Glass Concerts are free with generous seating available.

For more information, call Calvary Missionary Baptist Church at (937) 279-0580 or the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance at (937) 224-3521.

The 2013–2014 Stained Glass Series and Norma Ross Memorial Community Concerts are made possible by the Bob Ross Auto Group.

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 also the proud recipient of a 12-13 season grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
