About the show:
Dan has delighted audiences across the United States with his dramatic voice and comedic timing. Classically trained as an operatic baritone, Dan has had the privilege to perform in operatic, musical theatre genres for more than three decades. He has held leading roles in productions of Don Giovanni, Gianni Schicci, Carmen, Carousel, Phantom, La Boheme, Jeckle and Hyde and many more. He has been seen on the stage of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Glimmerglass Opera and The National Opera Company and in Atlanta with Atlanta Lyric Theatre performing at the Cobb Energy Center. Incidentally, Dan is also the Senior Director of Development for Relationship Events and The Longest Day for the Alzheimer’s Association, Georgia Chapter.
Amy is an established vocalist, pianist and award-winning composer. She has performed leading roles in several plays including Sound of Music, The Tempest, Lil Abner, Oklahoma, Look Homeward Angel, Man of La Mancha, South Pacific and To Kill a Mockingbird. She came to Atlanta from Knoxville, Tennessee, to perform as staff accompanist at the former Northside School of the Arts. In addition to being an accomplished pianist, Amy also is a delightful nuanced singer and can be seen as lead vocalist with the Sentimental Journey Orchestra. One of the highlights of singing with SJO was being invited to sing at Jimmy Carter’s Nobel Peace Prize celebration. Amy has a clear, intimate singing style that is loved from the first moment she is heard. Amy has performed in cabaret settings both as a singer and an accompanist.
Dan’s cabaret work is well known in Atlanta where he and Amy have performed together hundreds of times since 2001. Dan and Amy have built a great performing partnership that works hand in glove, which will be sure to show in this VIP opportunity honoring the musical stylings of Tony Bennett.
