Troy — This years Troy Mayors’ Concert will be held at 7 p.m. Sunday evening, Aug. 21, on Prouty Plaza.
This year, the board of directors is pleased to welcome Patrick Reynolds back to the stage. Now in his 18th season with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, associate conductor Patrick Reynolds is a frequent presence on the podium for DPO concerts. An enthusiastic proponent of educational programs, each season he leads the DPO in Magic Carpet, SPARK (School Partners with Artists Reaching Kids) and Young People’s Concerts, reaching thousands of students across the Dayton metropolitan area. Reynolds is in his 17th season as conductor of the Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, an organization selected from the area’s finest young musicians.
Reynolds is a member of the music faculty at the University of Dayton, where he conducts the University Orchestra and the Symphonic Wind Ensemble and teaches courses in conducting. He earned a doctor of musical arts degree in conducting from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and holds bachelor’s and master’s of music degrees from the University of Michigan School of Music.
The theme for the 2016 Troy Mayors’ Concert is “Sonic Spectacular!” This year marks the 24th annual concert that will also feature the Dayton Summer Chorus. Troy’s own Don Jenkins will be the guest conductor and Troy Mayor Michael Beamish will be directing “His Honor March,” by Fillmore. Troy High School student Sunao Masunaga will be presenting flute solos.
The public is asked to bring their lawn chairs for the event. A notable change is that handicapped parking will be available on South Market Street between West Franklin Street and the Public Square this year and Girl Scouts will assist with wheelchairs.
The Troy Christian School Gymnasium has been designated as the location in case of rain.
