DPAA Educational Programs

Since 1934, the Dayton Philharmonic has provided an introduction to the wonders of classical music through its man­y Education Programs. Today, we serve over 50,000 children in twelve counties. Last year, members of the orchestra, youth orchestras, and volunteer organization participated in more than 1,2­00 engagements and partnered with over 250 schools!  Beyond Ohio, the League of America Orchestras recognizes the DPAA Education Department and its programs for depth and innovation.

Altogether, we provide a wide selection of programs that suit a variety of education requirements.

Our mission is to bring music to kids in various ways. We want the largest number of children possible to benefit from the considerable advantage of having one of the nation’s best professional symphony orchestras right here in the Miami Valley community.
