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, University Professor of Music and Director of Choral Studies at Wright State University, has served as the Dayton Philharmonic Choral Director for twenty years. 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.
“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.”
Long-standing chorus member Effie Sue Kemerley agrees. “I have sung with Dayton Philharmonic choruses under every director, beginning with Paul Katz. What a continuing thrill it is to perform the great choral literature with an orchestra as professional as the DPO, under the baton of Maestro Neal Gittleman. The DPO Chorus quality has grown immensely under Hank Dahlman’s guidance, and now, with the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance, we have the opportunity to perform with Dayton Opera and Dayton Ballet. Truly the best volunteer musical experience in town!”
The 2018-2019 Vistas Season of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra opens on September 15, 2018 with the DPAA Season Opening Spectacular Beethoven’s Ninth and runs through June 2019.

The inaugural Sound Valley Summer Music Festival is being held over Labor Day weekend, at the Yellow Cab Tavern on Saturday, September 1st. This festival has a dual purpose: one, to showcase talented rock bands from across the Miami Valley, and to raise awareness and funds to help combat the heroin epidemic through the local non-profit, Brigid’s Path.
“Dayton has been considered the heroin capital of the United States. We want to shift the national perspective and reclaim our reputation as a place for innovation, creativity and artistic expression through music,” Zac Pitts, co-owner of Sound Valley said.
With a full day of live music, Sound Valley Summer Music Festival will feature local rock, indie, and alternative bands, including: Life In Idle, Knavery, Beesly, Yardboss, Weathervein, NOVAGOLD, Seth Canan And The Carriers, Crosley Court, Isicle, Flee The Valley, Dave Zup, ThunderTaker, and A Voice of Your Own.
“This event is meant to connect those who want to take Dayton’s music scene to the next level.” Pitts said. “There will be two stages, both indoor and outdoor, and some amazing local food trucks throughout the day to keep hungry fans happy!”
In addition to great music, half of Sound Valley Summer Music Festival’s proceeds will benefit the Dayton organization, Brigid’s Path. This local non-profit provides inpatient medical care for drug-exposed newborns, non-judgmental support for mothers and education services to improve family outcomes. “The heroin epidemic has hit our community hard,” Pitts said. “We want to work alongside those that are taking away the stigma and standing with our neighbors who are struggling.”
