On Sunday, March 17, 2019 at 3 pm in the Mead Theatre of the Schuster Center, the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance will present the fourth and final concert in the 2018–2019 Dayton Power & Light Foundation Family Series, Bach to the Future. The Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, under the leadership of Conductor Patrick Reynolds, will provide the music for this unique concert experience, which unites the Youth Orchestra with imaginative and captivating visual theater.
In addition to being the Family Series Sponsor for 2018–2019, DPAA’s Innovation Partner for this 2018–2019 Vistas Season is also the DP&L Foundation: Powering Innovation in the Performing Arts.
The Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra invites the Platypus Theatre Company to the Schuster Center, where together they will introduce concertgoers both young and young-at-heart to the magical world of classical music.
The Platypus Theatre Company has set out on a mission to create the next generation of classical music lovers. In partnership with visionary orchestras like the DPYO, they give young audiences the opportunity to explore music on a deeper level. Young audiences learn the power of creativity and self-empowerment while exploring musical eras and forms.
In Bach to the Future, Corky asks her eccentric Uncle Siegfried to help her with her student project on classical music. While poking around in his peculiar workshop, she accidentally combines the ingredients of a magical musical spell, making her tumble through time to meet some of the world’s most fascinating composers. Hopscotching through the ages of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Dvořák and Shostakovich, Corky must discover the secret musical formula that will bring her home. Will she be able to get back to the present and finish her schoolwork in time? Join us for this delightful Family Concert to find out!
