DARYL JORDAN - Miss Jordan’s many solo performances include concerts with the Long Island Philharmonic at the Tilles Center of the Brahms Requiem, and the premier of Ray Shattenkirk's, The Flower Kissers. Early solo appearances include Radio City Music Hall and the Saratoga Spa Music Theater. She has sung numerous solo recitals at universities and other venues throughout the Northeast, Washington, DC, and Long Island, where she resides. Following the performance of this recital at the famed New York State’s Chautauqua Institution’s Summer Festival a “Daryl Jordan” scholarship was awarded to a college voice student who showed outstanding ability in both music and drama. Miss Jordan is a graduate of the Crane School of Music, SUNY Potsdam and received a Masters Degree from Manhattan School of Music.

He has given performances and guest master classes at Hofstra University, SUNY Stony Brook, Suffolk County Community College, St. Joseph's College, Turtle Bay Music School and Trinity College Vermont. Mr. Ragone is the music director of the ensemble, Divalicious!, a trio of 3 singers who perform scenes from opera and musical theatre at venues all over Long Island.
