DAYTON, OH (June 29, 2017) – The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, under the leadership of Artistic Director and Conductor Neal Gittleman, is honored and excited to present a concert in celebration of the fifth anniversary of the highly successful Kettering Health Network Soin Medical Center in Beavercreek, OH. This celebratory concert will be held on Sunday, July 16, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. on the campus of Soin Medical Center, located at 3535 Pentagon Blvd. in Beavercreek, OH. This concert, called “Sounds of Summer,” is free and open to the public.  Concert-goers should bring their own chairs to enjoy this lovely evening of music at the Soin Medical Center!

Joining the DPO for this special performance will be local band Moment’s Notice, a pop and jazz group entirely comprising former United States Air Force bandsmen, with more than 80 years of combined service. Band members include guitarist and vocalist Dave Cousino, bassist Vinnie Marshall, lead vocalist Felita LaRock, and DPO’s own percussionist Jerry Noble.   

“We are delighted to be invited to perform a fifth anniversary celebration concert for Soin Medical Center,” said Paul Helfrich, President and CEO of the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance (DPAA). “Kettering Health Network is one of our most loyal supporters and we have enjoyed a longstanding partnership with them over the years. They are great corporate citizens and great supporters of the arts, and we are honored to be included in this festive occasion.  Neal and the orchestra will bring a varied and fun program, including our special guests Moment’s Notice, and we hope everyone will come out to share the music with us.”

This special evening opens with the patriotic "The Star-Spangled Banner" and includes familiar nostalgic favorites from Alford (“Colonel Bogey March”), Joplin (“The Entertainer”) and Strauss (“Blue Danube” Waltzes). Fitting for an outdoor concert on a warm summer evening, the DPO will perform Copland’s sweeping An Outdoor Overture and, hopefully not indicative of the forecast, Strauss’s “Thunder and Lightning Polka.” 

Moment’s Notice will then take the stage alongside the DPO to perform a rousing set of crowd-pleasers from the American Songbook, including “Midnight Train to Georgia,” “Burning Love,” “Doctor My Eyes,” and a moving rendition of “God Bless the USA.”  

Finally, the DPO visits Broadway and Hollywood with a full West Side Story Medley by Leonard Bernstein and Raiders of the Lost Ark March by John Williams.  The program closes with John Philip Sousa’s beloved "The Stars and Stripes Forever."

Join the Kettering Health Network, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, and Moment’s Notice this July 16 on the campus of the stunning Soin Medical Center for a wonderful evening of music and memories.
