About the Program

The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra invites you to a joyful celebration of the holiday season! Taking center stage with the DPO is Shayna Steele, who visits Dayton from the Big Apple to jazz up the holidays in the Gem City with favorite festive carols and dazzling holiday classics.

With a voice that the London Jazz News says “unleashes enough voltage to light up the West End”, Shayna Steele has made her mark as an in-demand vocalist on stage and in the studio. Having spent eight years as a Broadway ensemble member, performing in shows such as Rent and Hairspray, and six years in the background supporting artists like Bette Midler, Rihanna, and Kelly Clarkson, Steele stepped out on her own with the release of her 3rd studio album Watch Me Fly. Her self-penned song “Gone Under” from that same album was personally selected by Michael League of Snarky Puppy to be arranged for their album Family Dinner, Volume 1. This song and Steele’s performance was the first single to be released on the Grammy Award-winning band’s album, which has now reached over 1.7 million views on YouTube to date.

Shayna Steele and the Dayton Philharmonic dazzle and delight as they kick off the holiday season in Dayton!
