Danon Tsan, vocalist, will give a concert at the United Methodist Church in
Long Lake on Thursday, July 26, at 7:30 pm. Ms. Tsan, from Syracuse and Newcomb, is a versatile performer with a background in classical singing. When she isn’t singing the alto solos in Handel’s Messiah, she is performing cabarets in the Syracuse area. Tsan was in a chorus in the military (yes, she survived basic training) and was the featured soloist with Symphoria for their run of Holiday Pops concerts.
Danan has appeared with Syracuse Opera as Charlotte in A Little Night Music, and Aldonza/Dulcinea in Man of La Mancha, with Oswego Opera as The Mother in Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors and Maddalena in Verdi’s Rigoletto, and starred as Fantine in the Baldwinsville Theatre Guild’s production of Les Misérables. She continues to be featured in recitals and with orchestras around Central New York
While living in New York City, Danan was in the ensemble for Timmy the Great with Savion Glover, led her own award winning band, and sang back-up for Chris Isaak and Wynona Judd.
She holds degrees from Southern Methodist University and The Eastman School of Music, and now lives in Syracuse with her husband and 3 children. She currently teaches voice and directs the Chamber Singers at LeMoyne College. The family has a summer home in Newcomb.
The concert is free, but donations are appreciated. A reception to meet the artists will follow the program. For more information, call 518 582 2462.
This project is made possible, in part, with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and is administered by the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.
