As a music educator, Danielle is acutely aware how the integration of arts and sciences allows for a unique blending of professional skills regardless of which degree is earned or which profession is chosen. She believe that music provides a unique opportunity to develop skills in communication and self expression, as well as an appreciation for cultural diversity. It encourages both sides of the brain to connect and develop by promoting creativity and collaboration through a combination of didactic learning and performance practice. Additionally, music allows individuals to identify and refine their specific talents in a group environment and learn the social skills necessary to work as part of a team with shared goals.

Bach Cantata - BWV 172


J.S. Bach composed his cantata Erschallet, ihr Lieder, erklinget, ihr Saiten! (Resound, ye songs, ring out, ye strings!) in 1714, shortly after being promoted to Konzertmeister of the royal court in Weimar, Germany. He later revised and performed it several times while in Leipzig.

It was written for Whit Sunday (the first day of Pentecost) and was first performed on May 20, 1714 at the court chapel of the Weimar palace.
