BEAVERCREEK — Soin Medical Center is continuing its 5th anniversary celebration with the Sounds of Summer concert featuring the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra from 5-8 p.m. Sunday, July 16.

Located off Interstate 675 and US Route 35 in Beavercreek, Soin serves Greene, western Clark, eastern Montgomery and Miami counties, including nearby areas that are continually developing, like Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and Wright State University. Soin is located at 3535 Pentagon Blvd. next to The Mall at Fairfield Commons.

A celebration ceremony was held at the hospital in February to celebrate the five-year anniversary.

“For the past five years, Soin Medical Center has continued to advance our services by providing patient-centered, quality health care to our community. While our building ranks as one of the top 20 most beautiful hospitals, our mission is centered around the amazing physicians, employees and volunteers taking care of our community,” Rick Dodds, president of Soin Medical Center and Greene Memorial Hospital, said.

Dodds said the concert slated for Sunday is a way to include community members in the celebration.

“We thank residents for choosing and trusting us for their health care and that’s why we wanted to celebrate and invite all of our neighbors in Greene County and the Greater Dayton area,” he continued.

The Dayton Philharmonic is a professional orchestra comprised of musicians who also teach in area high schools, universities and privately. Music Director and Conductor Neal Gittleman continues to broaden the orchestra’s repertoire with more 20th century compositions and additional variety in programming. He has introduced a number of world, American and Dayton Philharmonic premieres and has expanded performance collaboration within the Dayton arts community. With Maestro Gittleman at the helm, the orchestra continues to enjoy renewed community support and increased artistic vision.

The opening act for the concert is Moment’s Notice, a local pop/jazz band. Band members Felita LaRock, Dave Cousino, Dave Haworth, Shawn Stanley and Jerry Noble served in U.S. Air Force as Bandsmen. The band’s members have performed with legends including Stevie Wonder, The Miracles, and Art Garfunkel.

The concert is free. Refreshments will be available for sale. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs. Coolers, pets and smoking will not be permitted.

Soin Medical Center and Greene Memorial Hospital serve Greene County and work together to provide medical services to area residents. They are part of Kettering Health Network.
