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 is the DPO choral director.
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. Choir members are dedicated to enriching the cultural life of the greater Miami Valley through workshops, clinics, joint concerts, and educational outreach.
“I have been a Dayton Philharmonic Chorus Member since 2000, and the experience has been one of the great delights of my life,” said chorus member Jack Fenic. “There is nothing like participating in the preparation and performance of a great choral work. I feel I have grown enormously as a singer under Hank Dahlman’s guidance.”
“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.”
The Dayton Philharmonic 2015-2016 season opens on Sept. 19 and 20 with the DPAA Season Opening Spectacular, “American Mosaic,” with chorus performances planned for this November and next May.
