Concert Night with the Dayton Philharmonic
Saturdays @ 8PM

While the Schuster Center is quiet, Discover Classical and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra are partnering to broadcast a recorded concert every Saturday evening. "The music of our Dayton Philharmonic is so important to the cultural life of our community," Neal said. "So it's a particular shame that we can't be playing live music to lift people's spirits, expose them to beauty, and give them hope now, when we all need it so much." Discover Classical's Shaun Yu said, "It is my hope that these concerts will remind audiences of what a treasure we have in our Dayton Philharmonic, and what we have to look forward to until we can all be together again."
