Dan Kane Singers ready for summer

WESTFIELD – As a music icon once sang, “from small things, big things one day come,” and such lyrics couldn’t be truer for the Dan Kane Singers.
With humble beginnings as a small group of adult singers in 1977, The Dan Kane Singers have become one of the area’s most well-known musical acts. Today, the group has over 150 members ranging in age from 6-80 years old. They perform at a variety of venues from local parades and restaurants to Springfield Symphony Hall.
Most recently, Dan Kane & Friends performed at Amelia Park. The concert, which featured music from Broadway, was held to honor the kindness and generosity of the late Westfield philanthropist, Albert Ferst. With many concerts scheduled throughout the year, there are plenty of chances to enjoy great live music with the group.
On Thursday, June 20 at 7 p.m. Freddie Marion and Friends will be performing Broadway and pop hits at the Yankee Pedlar Opera House in Holyoke. The concert will benefit the Blessed Sacrament School and Parish as they celebrate their 100th Anniversary.
The group will be celebrating the Fourth of July with several performances in the area. At 10 a.m. they will be singing summertime favorites from the top of the Double Decker Bus at the East Longmeadow parade. Later that night, the Young Rising Stars will be part of the pre-firework entertainment beginning at 7:30, singing at Riverfront Park in Springfield.
Dan Kane will also hold his 11th Annual Summer Singing Program for 160 children this July. The two-week day camp will take place from July 1 – July 12 at North Middle School. This annual event is for students ages 6-15 and is designed to inspire a love of singing. The program, which offers children the opportunity to sing with live musical accompaniment, has often been credited as a starting point for many local talented young singers with an eye on stardom.
