Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra National City Superpops Series Friday/Saturday March 13/14 Concert Presents Downtown Diva Starring Petula Clark

DAYTON, OH. (Top40 Charts/ Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra) - On Friday, March 13 and Saturday, March 14, 2009 at 8 p.m. in the Schuster Center, DPO Music Director Neal Gittleman and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra welcome legendary pop vocalist Petula Clark.

Born with "a voice as sweet as chapel bells," Petula Clark first broke into the limelight during World War II, when - as a child - she entertained the troops both on radio and in concert. She is said to have performed in over 200 shows for the forces all over England before the age of nine and, by war's end, Petula Clark had become known as the British "Shirley Temple." Tony Hatch visited Petula in the early sixties in Paris. The result was a new song, Downtown. Petula recorded it, and the rest is music history. She has never stopped recording - 50 plus years, over a 1,000 songs, and still counting! DPO fans can expect to hear such hits as l Know a Place, My Love, A Sign of the Times, and Don't Sleep in the Subway.

Petula's conductor and pianist, Kenny Clayton, is a legend in his own right. He will conduct and play on the second half of the program.

The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra is the largest and oldest performing arts organization in the community. Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra performances are made possible in part by Montgomery County and Culture Works, the single largest source of community funds for the arts and culture in the Miami Valley. Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra receives partial funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and from the Ohio Arts Council, a state agency created to foster and encourage the development of the arts and to preserve Ohio's cultural heritage. Funding from the Ohio Arts Council is an investment of state tax dollars that promotes economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohio residents.

ADDRESS: Performance Place at the Schuster Center ~ 109 North Main Street No 200 ~ Dayton, Ohio 45402
