Our music director leads our worship three Sundays per month, but we also enjoy the gifts of some of our area’s other fine musicians. Among those we enjoy most often are:
Dani Fiore is a multi-instrumentalist with a passion for drums and percussion. Dani loves to discover new ways of bringing people together through performing and teaching others how to express themselves through music. After becoming a certified Drum Circle Facilitator in 2015, Dani created “Life in Rhythm,” a set of programs and workshops focused on wellness using rhythm and sound. Dani continues to study Drum Circle Leadership through training programs with Jim Donovan, M.Ed.
Dani performs with various local and regional acts such R&B phenomenon, Shawan and the Wonton, pop singer/songwriter, Carly Clark, and more. Dani also lends their percussive talents to Open Stage of Harrisburg and other local musical theatre productions.
Outside of music, Dani is an avid hiker, cyclist, outdoor adventurer, and a student of psychology. They are also committed to visibility and advocacy for transgender and non-binary individuals. Dani facilitates a trans and non-binary support group for the LGBT Center of Central PA.
Dani is UUCV’s resident percussionist, and contributes to worship approximately twice monthly, especially on Sundays when the Choir sings.
