“Music Heals on Fifth and Main”
Levitt Pavilion Dayton
poster designed by Jason Sullivan
Beyond the applause is connectivity
space where light blends into evening skylines
and the urban core of atmospheric freedom
co-creates city-scape harmony.
Can you hear traces of music
pulling us forward?
In the city of second chances
smiles, laughter, and conversations reclaim space deemed underutilized
now asset and binding thread, celebrating accessibility.
The living room of Downtown Dayton extends beyond yesterday’s hardened barriers
now transformed into impromptu sidewalk networking
where lawn chairs activate creative place-making.
Sun rays and ripples of rolling clouds soar high
feels like summer, fresh air blowing through culture and class differences
Whimsical melodies become vehicles carrying
music and artistry
genres within genres
vibrational togetherness dissipates fear.
I’ll meet you at the Levitt
Dayton’s outdoor oasis under the stars
There is no lonely, the lawn is friend.
All is spacious and uplifting
no ceiling, doors, or entrance fee.
On any day, the show is worth the walk
in drizzling summer rain
sun or no shine
resonant and rousing shade turns relaxation into rejuvenation.
Children’s bare feet stomping away separation
in sync willing bodies sway to the cadence of rhythm
staff members and volunteers are filled with inclusive gratitude.
“Pass the blue bucket over here, I want to contribute” and let
this excitement live, heal, restore
visible joy of strangers waving their arms and singing in unison,
friends and family clap loudly while dancing.
“Dayton Strong” ingenuity made way for music to build community
one concert at a time.
We are Levitt
The Levitt Pavilion.
