Music Director Comments

I am excited about our season of great classical and musical theater hits. From wonderful light classics to masterworks of Mozart and Beethoven, we will all be humming the tunes long after the performances have concluded. Tchaikovsky, Grieg, Schubert, Offenbach, Gounod, Saint-Saëns, Dvorak, Liszt and others will fill out our list of classical hit composers. In addition, we are delighted to be collaborating again with the Dayton Playhouse in a fully staged production of Fiddler on the Roof. This will be performed with the full forces of the Miami Valley Symphony Orchestra. We hope you will join us for each of these exciting programs.

Our season begins with seven well-known light classics. The stately Marche Militaire No. 1 by Schubert opens, followed by Offenbach’s rousing Orpheus in the Underworld Overture. Works by Massenet, Johann Strauss, Jr., Gounod, and Grieg follow. We end with a flourish with Tchaikovsky’s popular 1812 Overture. Concertmaster John Root will be featured on the Meditation from Thais, and many of the orchestra’s principal players will have the opportunity to shine in these light classics. Some of these works are infrequently heard in live performance because they often don’t fit in the context of a masterworks program. The MVSO is looking forward to performing such a hit-filled line-up.
