Dan + Claudia Zanes - Family Sensory Friendly Show

Grammy award-winning children's performer Dan Zanes and Haitian-American music therapist/jazz vocalist Claudia Eliaza have been making music with each other since the day they met in the fall of 2016. The two decided 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 commitment to accessibility, the Kennedy Center commissioned Claudia and Dan to create a theater piece for young audiences. Their love of songs and communal music-making lead to a publishing a songbook entitled "Dan Zanes' House Party: A Family Roots Music Treasury." 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!

Tickets: $18

Complimentary tickets are available for those in need - please email info@artsrock.org.
