The year 2013 in Dayton, Ohio, is nearly gone, and for many of us, the last big decision we will make this year is deciding where to spend its final hours.
Shall we spend it around a table at one of Dayton’s many great restaurants and bars? At home, huddled around the fire, as we watch the ball drop in Times Square on television?
New Year’s Eve is celebrated differently all around the world, with cultural traditions and new, exciting innovations making it an ever-changing global holiday. This Dec. 31, all three members of the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance will get together, combine their talents, and celebrate 2014 with a festive global program. Combined performances from the Dayton Ballet, the Dayton Opera, and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra (DPO) will explore music from around the world, including pieces from Africa, Bohemia, England, France, Russia, and Austria.
Don’t miss the DPO New Year’s tradition of Concertmaster Jessica Hung playing a signature violin piece. This year features Ernest Chausson’s “Poème.”
The night of music and celebration in Dayton kicks off at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $13 to $65, depending on your seat. Hurry to get your spot, as seats at the Schuster Center are limited.
From all of us at Lovett & House Co., LPA, we encourage you to try something different this New Year’s Eve by ringing in 2014 with music from around the world.
Happy New Year to all, and may 2014 be a great and prosperous year for Dayton, Ohio!
