About Us

The Dan Kane Singers were a beloved 150 member volunteer singing group who called Springfield Symphony Hall and the MassMutual Center home for years. Their huge sold out Christmas concerts were sponsored by Peter Pan and The Big Y Corporations. The group proudly showcased fantastic adult singers and upcoming young stars spotlighting their incredible talents. This reputation continues today with Dan Kane and Friends.

Dan is a retired teacher after serving the Westfield Public School system for 34 years as a Special Education Teacher, Chorus Teacher and Reading Specialist. He currently teaches the Choral program at both St. Stanislaus School in Chicopee MA and at St. Mary’s School in Westfield.  He has been the organist at St. Patrick’s Church in Springfield for the past 46 years. He has 17 private singing students who perform everywhere with him.

The Stage of the gorgeous new Holyoke Senior Center bears his name as well as the Music Room in the Westfield Children’s Museum. He was named “Citizen of the Year” by the Holyoke St. Patrick’s Parade Committee as well as “Outstanding Teacher of the Year” by the Scholastic Book Company. His alma mater Westfield State University has named him “Alumni of the Year” for his years of philanthropic work in the community.

He continues to be the top promoter and coach to an exclusive group of young singers in Western MA. Several of his students have reached Broadway, TV, American Idol and The Voice. Several have gone on to become Music Teachers and Educators. All have gained a greater love and appreciation for their gift of music. He directs a very popular Summer Singing Camp at The Majestic Theater in West Springfield every August where many new and experienced young singers come for coaching and singing. The camp is celebrating its 20th year and sells out every season.

Kane performed in Washington DC for President Bill Clinton. Dan and his singers have produced a Christmas TV Special for Public Television and appear regularly on Catholic TV out of Boston. The Dan Kane Singers have raised unprecedented hundreds of thousands of dollars for multiple charities in the past 40 years and they continue that work today as Dan Kane and Friends.
