Discover Classical’s Concert Night with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra

Concert Night with the Dayton Philharmonic

Discover Classical’s Concert Night with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra

Discover Classical and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra are pleased to announce that every Saturday night, Discover Classical will broadcast a previously recorded concert from the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra for the southwest Ohio region to tune in and enjoy from the comfort of their homes. In this unprecedented time when concert halls are closed, Discover Classical and the Dayton Philharmonic are thrilled to partner together to bring the joy of music and maybe a little hope back into the lives of the greater Dayton community. 

Neal Gittleman, Artistic Director and Conductor for the Dayton Philharmonic said it's a particular shame that we can’t be playing live music to lift people’s spirits, expose them to beauty, and give them hope, when we all need it so much. 

"The music of our Dayton Philharmonic is so important to the cultural life of our community," said Gittleman. "These concerts from the DPO and DPAA archives are, I suppose, the next best thing until we can once again all be together in person."

Concert Night with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will air Saturday evenings at 8 pm on Discover Classical 88.1FM WDPR Dayton89.9FM WDPG Greenville89.1FM WUSO Springfield, and online at
