By Francisco Salazar

Savannah VOICE Festival has announced the appointment of a new board of trustees member, Daniel “Danny” Cohen.

Cohen graduated from Presbyterian College with a voice performance degree in 1982 and earned his law degree from the University of South Carolina in 1985. He has earned an AV preeminent rating from Martindale- Hubbell and a listing in The Best Lawyers in America for work in the practice area of Alternative Dispute Resolution since 2008.

Cohen is currently a Senior Neutral at Miles Mediation & Arbitration, having opened the Savannah Office in 2016.

In a statement Cohen said, ” “I have been an active vocalist in the Savannah area over the last 35 years and am so pleased to be serving on the board of the Savannah VOICE Festival because it is an organization I have supported for many years. I believe that my background, expertise, and love for vocal performance will allow me to make a positive impact on the future of the festival and the vocal arts in Savannah.”

SVF was founded in 2012 by opera legend Sherrill Milnes and his wife, Maria Zouves. Under the umbrella of the Milnes VOICE Programs, the nonprofit arts organization brings classical vocal excellence to Savannah with three weeks of operatic and musical theater productions, events and educational presentations during the month of August and throughout the rest of the year.
