Construction is expected to begin in September on a new live music venue in downtown Dayton. The Levitt Pavilion project is moving forward after organizers Tuesday reached their $5 million capital-funding goal.

The project has also received funding and support from the city of Dayton, Montgomery county, foundations and corporate sponsors.
