Holidays in the Heartland VISTA display-page-001

Wright State’s “Holidays in the Heartland” concert at the Schuster Center in downtown Dayton has become an annual — and highly popular — Miami Valley tradition. This year, thanks to the primary creative force behind the HIH concert — Dr. Hank Dahlman, director of WSU’s CELIA program — the concert will have a WWI theme. Much of the second half of the concert will feature music associated with the Great War, with narration by Dr. Paul Lockhart (History, Wright State) and video imagery by Imagewerx. Sunday, November 2, 2014, at the Schuster Center. Tickets are available online at, by phone (888) 228-3630 or at the Schuster Center box office. Details here.
