The beating of the heart persists through life’s journey. It experiences the highs and lows of new life, love, loss, pain, and all the complex emotions each phase of life brings. Collaborating with jazz ensemble Veronneau, contemporary dance group Company Danzante blends broad cultural and artistic perspectives into a production that harmonizes two artistic genres and explores the common ties that bind us as human beings.
About Veronneau and Dave Kline
A regular guest of Veronneau on stage and in the studio, Dave Kline has appeared on two of their CD releases Joie de Vivre, which was featured in the US top 10 charts for World and Jazz music and Snow Time, which won the Washington Area Music Association (WAMA) WAMMIE award for Best Jazz Album, 2014 (Dave also engineered and co-produced this album). CBC Music recognized Dave’s violin “gypsy jazz” as adding “color and depth” to Veronneau’s energetic sound.
