Bio: Danielle Woerner’s email signature has a tagline: “Resonating with Renaissance Women in a World of ‘You Must Do One Thing.’” She’s an acclaimed classical singer and recording artist who performs and teaches voice in most musical genres; a BMI-affiliated songwriter with a Master’s Certificate in Songwriting from Berklee; a writer whose work appears in international publications and in the 2021 chapbook of her poems and photos, I Never Promised You a Cherry Orchard: Japanese Short-Form Poetry, Served with a Twist (Sunrise Song Press). She’s also been a journalist and publicist, and a serial entrepreneuse in the arts. Danielle has a passion and a gift for helping people access their essential, unique, powerful voices—for both professional development and pleasure—and boost their confidence. Her 2020 all-online initiative, “Sing into Joy: Singing as Your Path to Wellness,” applies the elements of healthy singing to enhance clients’ physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Beginning her professional life in Manhattan, Danielle was President of the respected classical concert management/PR firm Woerner/Bobrick Associates, while simultaneously launching a successful singing career. In 1990, she moved to the Hudson Valley, first as Bard College’s Public Relations Director and then as a highly valued performer and teacher in the region. Her long-standing musical relationships with living composers led to the creation of two acclaimed commercial CDs, for Parnassus and Albany Records, of songs and chamber music by Otto Luening, Robert Starer, Alan Shulman, Aurora Northland, Peter Schickele and others, on which Danielle was principal artist and executive producer. In 2014, she relocated with her husband Claude Johnson to Milbridge, ME, a small town on the Bold Coast, where they co-founded the Sunrise County Arts Institute (SCAI), and a vacation-rental business, The “Gust” House LLC. Her many SCAI activities have included co-creating and producing original shows with music with teenagers and adults in the DownEast-Acadia region, an activity which moved to virtual productions as of 2021. In NYC, the mid-Hudson and now in DownEast Maine, Danielle has been the creative driving force behind several initiatives that have furthered area and niche economic development while enhancing the presence of the fine and expressive arts. She is delighted to join the FloBel Advisory Board.
