Danielle Gasparro: Spring Residency

In duo with Danton Boller, acoustic bass

On the wings of a magnificent month-long residency at Caffe Vivaldi last December, soulful New York City based singer-songwriter Danielle Gasparro returns to her beloved hometown musical nest for an enchanting and dynamic spring presentation of her vital, ever-expanding body of piano-driven musical work. Performing every Tuesday in April & May from 7:30pm - 9:30pm, Danielle will once again be joined by an illustrious lineup of guest artists who are among the great musical heavyweights performing and recording in NYC today—with one very special evening of poetry and song held in April, creatively “composed” as part of National Poetry Month.

These weekly excursions of song and spirit are (in short) not to be missed. Come escape the dust of daily life and let this captivating chanteuse escort you to that vital junction of meaning and reverie that only music has the map to!
