At the Oakwood Historical Society, you enjoy an elegant evening of champagne, chocolate, and appetizers for both singles and couples. This enjoyable and fanciful celebration of love includes the Newlywed Game, speed dating, and a dip in the chocolate fountain (please...strawberries only). This fun event happens on Saturday, 6 to 9pm in the historical setting of the Long-Romspert House Museum.

The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra are performing at the Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, 2067 N. Gettysburg Avenue to celebrate the human spirit through the universal medium of music. This is on Sunday, at 5pm and there is no cost and open to the public.

At Coco's Bistro, the Stivers School for the Arts serenade you while enjoying a tasty brunch, and supporting the premier arts school in the region. On Sunday, The Stivers Chamber Choir will be performing. The other Sundays this month you will hear The Stivers Concert Pianists; and The Stivers Strings. These sell out quickly so be sure to reserve a spot.

Gotta go….
