HJO Featuring Dana Lauren at Elicit Brewery
On Monday, September 25, 2023 vocalist extraordinaire Dana Lauren returns to sing with the Hartford Jazz Orchestra.
Music has always been a major part of Dana’s life. Playing classical piano since the age of 6 and studying classical voice since the age of 13, she has gained a respect and understanding for all different types of music. Having a mother who loved jazz her whole life, Dana has been heavily influenced by jazz since she was young. At the age of 13 she began to take jazz piano lessons which furthered knowledge of the technical aspects of jazz. Dana has also studied at the Litchfield Jazz Festival Summer Institute where she had the opportunity to work with great teachers who helped her explore her style, as well as meeting great artists who have had a major impact on her career. As well as vocalists, instrumentalists have had a huge impact on her vocal style, making it pure and original yet true to the style of jazz.
