Diva's Daughters Band
Diva's Daughters is a vocal trio who raises their voices against violence against women through their singing. All three divas are trained opera singers who met on the set of Mozart's Magic Flute in 2008 and have enjoyed singing various genres together since. In 2014 they produced their first EP entitled "Speak of the Diva" which can be found on

Their tight harmonies and uplifting spirit suports their own non-profit organization, which backs organizations that work to interrupt the cycles of violence. The divas agree that creating beautiful music is more rewarding when it's for a greater cause and are passionate about accomplishing together what none of them could alone.

Valerie Giglio
Valerie Giglio got her start in the music scene while singing in several bands while a college and law school student. Singing across many genres from Jazz/Blues to Classic Rock and R&B, Valerie brings the old-school sound back and pairs it with contemporary elements of today's pop music. She has released two CDs "Songbook" and "The Italian Project" comprising of her unique retro-styling on American and Italian standards and contemporary hits.

n June 2014, after a rehearsal for CSN Boston's 10-year anniversary show, Valerie suffered a major stroke, which paralyzed her entire left side from head to toe as well as her left vocal cord, resulting in a total loss of her singing voice and confining her to a wheelchair. Over the last year, she has relearned to walk and sing with the help of Spaulding Rehab and The Real School of Music in Burlington. This will be Valerie's first show since the stroke as she continues to work her way back to the stage and regain her singing voice.
