Montalbine, Diane Out Of My Dreams- Diane Perry-Jazz violin and vocals Music
I am a Juilliard-trained classical violinist who has been performing jazz for over 20 years. I currently am doing a music program suitable for all ages, with either piano or keyboard, (or guitar) and prefer to also add bass, and drums, or a guest instrumentalist as well. The program is called Out Of My Dreams after the title of my new CD, and I perform standards and not-so-standard songs from the canon of the American Popular Songbook, as well as originals. I sing and play jazz violin, and even occasionally sneak in a classical piece for fun. Some of the songs are presented in such a way that people can sing along if they wish, and it is designed to be entertaining and fun for the audience, not merely a concert where quiet reigns, and I like to use humor and stories of where the songs came from to enrich the program.
