Pianist Danielle Nicole Errico was introduced to the performing arts at an early age and realized that music would be her special calling. As a musician, expanding her piano repertoire, performing in chamber groups, solo performing, accompanying, and teaching privately have become the aspirations in her life.
Danielle had an early opportunity under the guidance of her first primary music teacher Esther Chung Marks, to perform the piano solo in Saint-Saens Carnival of the Animals with the Sound Symphony Orchestra. Her first piano master class was with Norman Krieger from the Long Island Philharmonic Master Class Series. This led Danielle to perform in Tzimon Barto's master class, playing Debussy's Reflets dans l'eau where she received the Long Island Philharmonic Music Award. She was then featured as the piano soloist in Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.
Attending SUNY Stony Brook on an academic and music scholarship Danielle had many opportunities to perform in chamber music recitals and solo recitals with works by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Grieg, Liszt, Mozart, Saint-Saens, and Shostakovick. She also attended the Stony Brook Summer Music Festival three years in a row on scholarship where she worked with coaches Christine Dore, Maria Garcia, Linda Sinnanian, and Jeffrey Forden. At that time she forged a life long bond with violinist Lisa Casal-Galietta. Their chamber group including trumpist Kevin Byre was fortunate to have a coaching and performance with composer Eric Ewazen at the Juilliard School of Music. In 2002 Danielle attended the Boston Conservatory Summer Piano Program in the studio of Michael Lewin where she performed in a master class with Seymour Bernstein.
After attending SUNY Stony Brook for two years Danielle transferred to Manhattan School of Music for piano performance studying with Jeffrey Cohen performing works of Bach, Barbar, Chopin, Debussy, Muczynski, and Ravel. She performed works of Beethoven under coach Gerald Robbins and works of Brahms under coach Marian Feldman. Danielle received her Bachelor of Music Degree in Piano Performance from Manhattan School of Music in May 2006.
Danielle works in the Manhattan and Long Island area as a performer, teacher, and an accompanist.
