Celebration of the Arts

A Showcase of Music and Dance

Celebration of the Arts, 2023

Symphonic music to jazz, gospel to Javanese gamelan, opera to modern dance: each year, this diverse and lively program celebrates the artistic accomplishments of University of Dayton students from the Department of Music, the Theatre, Dance and Performance Technology Program and across the university. 

At the University of Dayton, we believe in the power of the arts to transform lives and build community. We invite all students to participate in the arts, and all members of our community to join us for this evening of music and dance that will move, inspire and uplift. 

The showcase of music and dance usually features the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, University Orchestra, University Chorale, Bella Voce, Ebony Heritage Singers, World Music Choir, Javanese Gamelan, University Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble, Opera Workshop and UD Dance Ensemble.
