Danny Cohen Devotes Week to 2017 American Traditions Vocal Competition
Team Leader Danny Cohen is taking a rare week off from mediating to focus on one of his longtime passions: singing. Danny will spend this week immersed in the 24th season of the American Traditions Vocal Competition (ATC), as he is the president of ATC’s board of directors. The week-long event is dedicated to singing competitions and educational programming and is held in Savannah every year.
Danny is recognized throughout the Coastal Empire as a talented singer, and he received a much-deserved spotlight on his career in a February 2016 Daily Report article. “I love the vocal arts and every year look forward to my role as the president of the ATC board of directors,” said Danny. “The competition celebrates the diversity of local music and showcases the incredible talents of singers from various parts of the country.”
During 2003-2005 Danny competed in ATC, reaching the semi-finals in 2005. “When I competed back then, I sang in several genres of American music like Broadway and musicals; American opera arias, jazz, folk songs and much more,” said Danny. “And even though I no longer compete, I enjoy every second of my interactions with all involved in this fantastic vocal competition.”
This year, 27 contestants from all over the country will vie for the gold medal prize of $12,000 and placement on the Savannah Philharmonic’s 2017-18 mainstage program.
