Art @ A Distance: Children's Online Concert with Dan + Claudia Zanes

+ More Info

Join us online Sunday, July 19 for grammy award winning children’s performer Dan Zanes and Haitian-American music therapist / jazz vocalist Claudia Zanes.  Dan and Claudia have been making music with each other since the day they met in the fall of 2016.

The two decided while sitting at Dan’s kitchen table that afternoon that they would continue singing together and, in the spirit of inclusion and good times, would work with presenters to try and make all of their concerts sensory friendly.

Inspired by their artful modern-day all-ages folk music and their commitment to accessibility, the Kennedy Center commissioned Claudia and Dan to create a theater piece for young audiences. Night Train 57: A Sensory Friendly Comic Folk Opera premiered in October 2017 and has been performed several times since. 

Their love of songs and communal music-making lead to a publishing deal with the Quarto Group USA and the result, a songbook entitled Dan Zanes’ House Party: A Family Roots Music Treasury, was released in late 2018. This has opened the doors to many new conversations with parents, educators, music therapists, and fellow musicians about how to work together to create a healthier, more musical (and ultimately, more festive), society.

While taking on these projects, Claudia and Dan have continued to bring their music to family shows, school workshops, community singalongs, and folk festivals throughout the U.S. and into Canada. They take their commitment to accessibility and inclusion with them wherever they go.

And – the icing on the cake – in the midst of it all they were married!

This year has been different than all the rest! We are kicking off our summer concert later this year and doing it socially distantly but we are celebrating summer and the HCA none the less! Join us for the final event of our week long fundraiser in support of the HCA.

The Mike Payette Band features the great vocal and bass talents of Michael Payette, who will be performing music ranging from a cool, unplugged, coffee house atmosphere, to a full dance band experience. Joining Mike and the band will be the vocal powerhouse Cecilia Colucci. We are fortunate to have Mike, his band, and Cecilia with us to perform an outdoor concert from the parking lot! As you arrive you will be assigned a socially distant parking spot where you can set up a blanket, chairs and picnic basket to enjoy a family evening of music and fun. Each car load will receive a swag bag of goodies, we will have raffle items available and the ice cream truck will stop by. Hope to see you there!
