DANVILLE – Members of the community are invited to a wonderful night of fantastic music at the Village Theatre & Art Gallery.
Two phenomenal artists will be gracing the stage at the theatre to bring their craft to Danville. Set for November 20, 2016, the evening will feature nationally acclaimed Bay Area jazz vocalist Eve Marie Shahoian with special guest artist two time Grammy Award winning violinist Mads Tolling.
