The Rising Stars Gala is back after a two-year hiatus! The event will be an inspiring evening filled with delicious food and drink, musical performances, fun with friends, and a silent auction to support Discover Classical.

The Gala is Saturday, July 30, in The Tank on the lower level of the Dayton Arcade.  A VIP reception will be held from 6:00 to 6:45pm when you can meet the winners of Discover Classical's Young Talent Search, enjoy a champagne toast and have early access to the auction.

Doors open for the main event at 6:45pm. Attendees can enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres, complimentary beer and wine, a silent auction and, of course, performances by our Young Talent Search winners. Cocktail attire requested.

The Dayton Arcade is located at 35 West Fourth Street, Dayton OH 45402. Enter at the white "subway-style" staircase on the sidewalk, or use the Arcade doors nearby if you prefer to take an elevator down to The Tank. Discover Classical volunteers will be at both entrances to assist you.

If you have questions about the Rising Stars Gala, contact Martha Harris at or (937) 222-9377.
