How you can collaborate with Dana
“I would love to connect about opportunities for presenting my original composition, I Never Saw Another Butterfly, especially as it relates to Holocaust Remembrance. In addition to the performance aspect, I look forward to engaging in discussion about the compositional process and how the young victims’ poetry guided these new jazz works, serving as as vessel for their memories.”
