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. Hank Dahlman is the DPO Choral Director. The mission of the Choirs of the Dayton Philharmonic is to serve as part of the orchestra during the regular subscription season, performing choral-orchestral works. Choir members are dedicated to enriching the cultural life of the greater Miami Valley through workshops, clinics, joint concerts, and educational outreach.

 “I have been a Dayton Philharmonic Chorus Member since 2000, and the experience has been one of the great delights of my life,” said chorus member Jack Fenic. “There is nothing like participating in the preparation and performance of a great choral work. I feel I have grown enormously as a singer under Hank Dahlman’s guidance.”

 “The Choirs of the Dayton Philharmonic provide 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 stage of the Schuster Center 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.”   

The Dayton Philharmonic 2015-2016 season opens on September 19 and 20, 2015 with the DPAA Season Opening Spectacular, American Mosaic, with chorus performances planned for this November and next May.


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.
