“Celebration of the Arts provides an opportunity for arts faculty and students to share their talents and accomplishments with the community in Dayton’s beautiful downtown venue,” said Sharon Gratto, a professor of music at the University of Dayton and the Graul Chair in Arts and Languages, in a press release.

“Many of the performers on stage are not arts majors, which illustrates the importance of arts experiences and opportunities at UD for students in all disciplines, from engineering to teacher education.” 

The event starts with a display of collaborative and individual student art in the Wintergarden, including a performance by the Javanese Gamelan, a student group that plays Indonesian music on traditional instruments.
