Dayton Philharmonic Rockin’ Orchestra Series - Dayton Funk: A Tribute to Dayton’s Funk Legacy w/ Dayton Funk All-Stars & Guests
DAYTON FUNK ALL-STARS guest artists
NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
The Dayton Philharmonic travels back in time to Dayton during the 70s and 80s when our city emerged as the “World Capital of Funk.” The R&B charts of these two decades topped out with more hits from Dayton artists than from almost any other American city. Often these hits leapt right off the R&B charts and straight up the pop charts! Celebrate this era of Dayton with us as symphony fuses with jazz, blues, and rock, and we relive the history of music in our funky town. The concert is performed in partnership with The Funk Music Hall of Fame & Exhibition Center (aka “The Funk Center”) and in conjunction with the University of Dayton’s Funk Symposium.
