Newlyweds Grammy Award winner Dan Zanes and Haitian-American jazz vocalist Claudia Zanes perform Dan’s greatest hits, as well as folk and blues classics from their popular new songbook entitled Dan Zanes’ House Party!: A Family Roots Music Treasury. The concert also includes selections from their Kennedy Center-commissioned folk opera, Night Train 57. The audience is invited to dance and sing along in what might be called a casual – and subversively educational – party atmosphere. The music is homespun, joyful, sophisticated, and artful. This concert is intended for audiences of all ages!
Did you know? For the past two years, Claudia and Dan have been advocating for increased accessibility in performing arts spaces through sensory friendly presentations. Also known as “relaxed” or “come as you are,” these performances create conditions that are comfortable for audience members with a wide range of needs. We’re thrilled to welcome them to People’s Light!
Please read the "Know Before You Go" section at the bottom of this page and be prepared to follow event guidelines so that we can ensure a safe, welcoming, and enjoyable experience for everyone.
The concert will take place on our brand new outdoor stage in The Glen—the green space between the Leonard C. Haas and Steinbright stages, located to your right directly behind the first building on campus.
Reservations are available in groups of 2 or 4 by purchasing a family circle on the grass for $35, which comfortably seats up to 4 adults/children and 1 infant, or a pair of chairs (provided by People's Light) for $25. We recommend bringing sunscreen and hats, as well as a blanket to sit on if you purchase a family circle. Lawn chairs and umbrellas are not permitted in family circles, as they obstruct the view for others.
There is ramp access to The Glen, free accessible parking very close to the event location, and an ADA-compliant outdoor portable toilet and wash station.
Coffee, juice boxes, and pastries will be available for purchase from our outdoor concession stand.
In order to gather safely and responsibly, availability is limited and seating is spread out throughout the lawn. We are following all current PA regulations for outdoor events and will update our guidelines if regulations change.
