Danielle Woerner: Writing and Songwriting
Danielle's writing career, like her singing, is multi-faceted.
Her expository skills were honed during the 1980s, when she was one of New York City's most respected classical-music publicists and concert presenters. She ran a firm called Woerner/Bobrick Associates with her former husband, the author, Benson Bobrick, while developing her singing career at the same time. W/BA presented a great deal of new musical work on the New York and national scenes, and Danielle's descriptions of the music and the events helped distinguish them in the media's and the public's eye. She became a top publicist for the CBS television network's Entertainment Division, and finally, Bard College's Director of Public Relations, before going into her musical and other creative work full-time.
Danielle's feature articles have appeared on the pages of national magazines like Newsweek (July, 2005), Classical Singer (November, 2006), and New Music Connoisseur (August 2001). Regionally, she was a regular contributing feature writer and reviewer for Hudson Valley Magazine and The Woodstock Times for several years.
More recently, her skill with the pen has taken a more imaginative turn. Her poetry has been published in the arts and culture monthly, Chronogram (June 2007). She's currently completing two novels -- one based on her grandmother's life in 19th/20th century Philadelphia, and the other drawing on her experiences as a young singer in Manhattan -- writing slam poems based on classic stories, and creating songs.
Now enrolled in Berklee College of Music's Master Certificate Program in Songwriting, Danielle creates songs that draw on folk, classical art-song, musical theater and jazz traditions, to forge an independent style all her own. She is a BMI-affiliated songwriter, and has been awarded one of Berkleemusic's coveted Celebrity Scholarships for her work in the Master's program.

DANIELLE WOERNER: Singer, Teacher, Writer... Throwback?
"Major kudos to Danielle Woerner, whose towering performance glows musically and dramatically.
In soprano Danielle Woerner's case, "capable of anything" is particularly apt.
Not only is she an unusually versatile performer, with a classical repertoire that runs from the Renaissance through present-day pieces written just for her, she also branches out into folk, jazz, performance art and world music. In Manhattan, where The New York Post called her "one of the shining lights of New York's musical life," and The New York Times praised her "fresh, agile voice [and] intelligent singing," she's performed at venues from La MaMa to Lincoln Center to Carnegie (Weill) Hall. She's been heard onstage from Maine to Florida and on National Public Radio broadcasts throughout the country. In the mid-Hudson region of New York State, her primary home since 1990, she's been called "one of the Seven Wonders of the Hudson Valley" by one of the admiring critics familiar with her performances with orchestra, on concert and recital series, in opera and musical theater, and at cabaret, jazz and folk venues.
As a recording artist, Danielle's two commercial CD's feature music and performances by some of the 20 th and 21st centuries' foremost American composers, including Otto Luening, Robert Starer and Peter Schickele.
Danielle also executive-produced those recordings: She Walks in Beauty (Parnassus 96012), which has garnered international kudos, and Voices of the Valley, featuring music by Hudson Valley composers (Troy 877-Release date Nov. 1, 2006). Her new label, Woodlark Rising Records will soon be issuing other projects, with a mission of integrating music with healing work.
A master teacher in vocal technique, repertoire, and many areas of performance practice, Danielle is sought after by the private students who come to her studio in Shokan, NY; by the colleges in the mid-Hudson region; and also by other voice teachers seeking to hone their skills and broaden their creativity. She leads workshops for amateurs and professionals on a variety of musical subjects. A strong believer in the healing capacity of music, she's been a nationally-featured presenter at conferences for the arts and mental health, and has served as a music-and-arts activity therapist.
Danielle uses the power of the pen, too. Her feature articles have appeared on the glossy pages of national magazines like Newsweek and Classical Singer, and the regional monthly Hudson Valley, and on the newsprint of the local Woodstock (NY) Times. New songs take shape on music manuscript paper at her piano. Her computer screen might reveal a glimpse of her novel in progress, her latest slam poem, or a letter to the editor. She's created vocal-music arrangements for theatrical productions, including a staging of Aristophanes' Lysistrata that she produced as part of the worldwide " Lysistrata Project" anti-war statement of May 2003, which involved 1039 public readings of the play in 59 countries.
She is deeply involved in her community, serving as a director of-and singing in uncounted benefits for-arts, education and progressive political organizations in the mid-Hudson region. She founded an Artist in Residence program at a Kingston, NY, church that revitalized musical performances in the neighborhood and gave rise to a celebrated young people's choral ensemble, the Hudson Valley Youth Chorale. She directs the choral group Voices for Peace, made up of singers and singer-songwriters who perform music of peace and reconciliation.
To keep track of all these activities, Danielle is the founder and is executive director of Woodlark Arts, Inc., an "umbrella" for a whole range of services in the arts. Visit Woodlark Arts' web page for more information on voice lessons and workshops at Woodlark Studio, music for weddings and special occasions, Writing and Songwriting services, and Woodlark Rising Records.
When all these indoor pursuits start to bring on a case of "cabin fever," Danielle goes out to the garden that she and her husband have created together--a retreat not only for them but for the plants, protected from the hungry neighborhood deer. "No veggies," she says of her hobby. "I like to buy those from the organic local farmers. She does grow berries and herbs, though, and confesses that when the Japanese beetles begin chowing down on the weeping cherry tree, they may see the Bellini side of "capable of anything."
2014 Update: Now, new horizons beckon. Danielle and her husband are relocating to Down East Maine, where they are starting a music and arts center, the Sunrise County Arts Institute, in a charming small town by the sea.

Danielle Woerner: Recordings, 2 May 2015 [cached]
Danielle Woerner, Soprano
Called "Voices of the Valley: Danielle Woerner, Soprano, Sings Music by Hudson Valley Composers," this sparkling new CD features Danielle in music of Peter Schickele, Robert Starer, Aurora Northland, James Fitzwilliam, Robert Baksa, and Alan Shulman, with Schickele and Fitzwilliam playing piano in their own works.
"Ms. Woerner sang sweetly, surely and unaffectedly, with specially good support from the cellist Susan Seligman"
Danielle Woerner
The CD's musical program (a generous 77 minutes) is tied together by a number of elements: the poetry, the fact that several of the pieces were written for Danielle, and the composers' use of soprano voice with various combinations of string quartet, flute, clarinet and piano.

Over the past seven years Robert Starer (who lives in Woodstock, New York) and Danielle Woerner have worked together frequently, in performances in the Hudson Valley and in the preparation of new works.
It features the singing of soprano Danielle Woerner, tenor Dennis Delgado, high baritone Jody Kruskal, and bass David Olsen, and the playing of Gamelan Son of Lion, directed by Benary.
The 22 tracks on this original studio recording of the full score (recorded 2003) feature a number of Hudson Valley singers, including soprano Danielle Woerner in the role of Margaret Reed, plus several alumni/ae of her voice studio--Lia Sumerano, Steve Stiert, Robert DeRivera and Susan Mintzer--in other featured roles.

Danielle Woerner: Singer
Praised for her charismatic and beautiful performances onstage, and her recordings that capture the essence of music of our time, Danielle enjoys a varied career as a soprano soloist that spans an impressively broad repertoire. It includes classical and operatic music from the middle ages through the 21st century; jazz, folk and world music; musical theater and cabaret. Her many New York City performances have been in venues ranging from La MaMa to Lincoln Center, including a recital debut at Merkin Concert Hall that was praised by The New York Times, and appearances at Carnegie (Weill) and CAMI Halls. She has been heard over National Public Radio, WAMC's Northeast Public Radio Network, WMHT-WRHV, and all of New York City's classical, public and university radio stations.
In staged works, Danielle has sung principal roles in operas and musical theater productions (Rigoletto, Carmen, Die Zauberfloete, Dido & Aeneas, Amahl and the Night Visitors, Gianni Schicchi, The Impresario, The Gypsy Baron, The Most Happy Fella, Follies, Into the Woods and more) with the Amato, Brooklyn Lyric and Delaware Valley Opera Companies, NYCA, the Gilbert & Sullivan Musical Theatre Company, and the Rhinebeck and Shandaken Theatrical Societies.
"Danielle Woerner has the kind of voice that sends shivers down your spine with its trueness and variety.
During her highly successful fall 2000 semester as Artist in Residence at Ulster County Community College in Stone Ridge, NY, Danielle gave a concert, "Voices of the Valley," that featured music of living Hudson Valley composers Robert Baksa, James Fitzwilliam, Aurora Northland, Richard Olsen, Peter Schickele, Alan Shulman and Robert Starer.
Early in her career, Danielle participated in several recordings by the NYC chamber chorus The Canby Singers (Telarc and RCA), and later in Leonard Bernstein's live recording of the Mahler 3rd Symphony with the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall.
Collaborations with Manhattan-based chamber groups have brought Danielle together with The Risorgimento Project (specializing in music of the Italian salon tradition), the Laurentian String Quartet, and new-music ensembles the Da Capo Chamber Players, Composers Concordance, Gamelan Son of Lion, and North-South-Consonance.
The following summer, Danielle gave two celebrated performances at the Maverick Concert Hall of Heitor Villa-Lobos's Bachianas Brasilieras No.5, in its arrangement for soprano and eight cellos.
Far from being all seriousness, Danielle enjoys doing comedy with the likes of performance poet-musicians Mikhail Horowitz and Gilles Malkine.
"I miss the gamelan," says Danielle, who had to give it up when evenings got too busy with rehearsals and teaching.
Danielle will sing classical, jazz, popular or folk music with any combination of instruments your heart and pocketbook desire: string quartet, guitar, flute, harp, jazz combo, the organist at your wedding location.
SING-ALONG PARTIES: Danielle will lead the music for a gathering of your song-loving friends in your own home. Pre-planning with you, coupled with a spontaneous approach at the party, allow the music to flow with the mood of the evening.
