All of us have appreciated the sights, sounds, and smells of Glen Helen….and the wild flowers, raptors, tree frogs, the great blue heron...And almost all poets have nature poems. During this holiday/solstice season those works will be shared, at a poetry reading, "In the Spirit of the Glen," on today from 7-9:00p.m. Vernet Ecological Center at 405 Corry St in Yellow Springs.
It's been a tough couple of years on arts communities across the nation and in Dayton, a new collaboration is taking place. As Emily McCord reports for WYSO, The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is the first merged philharmonic orchestra, ballet, and opera organization in the country.
Three major Dayton arts organizations are making an unusual move to merge under a single management structure.
The Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera and Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra are forming the Dayton Performing Alliance. The new nonprofit organization announced it will have one board of directors and three artistic directors.
Leaders from the individual organizations say it could boost artistic collaboration and may be a model for arts groups elsewhere to consider.
