“It Seems like I’ve Been Singing My Whole Life.”
Over the past 22 Years of his life, Dane Reese has been using his voice to entertain audiences from all over the world. From his start at age 5 in Texas Boys Choir, he knew even then that his true love was music. Having a very supportive family, he was able to pursue his craft to its fullest extent. After doing children’s theater and musicals for several years and now in High School, his focus shifted to Classical Music. While training a young Baritone voice, he managed to be named to the Texas All-State Choir four years in a row, received high marks in several NATS competitions as well sang in Carnegie Hall twice.
After high school, Reese attended New England Conservatory for two years. He had the absolute privilege to be mentored and taught by Edward Zambara, the renowned Baritone teacher. Though his stay at New England Conservatory was short, he gained a sturdy foundation that he feels he would not other wise have in his voice today.
He then Traveled to New York to begin his professional career and atttend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy(AMDA). Since his graduation, he has performed in Texas, South Caroline, New York, New Jersery, and New Hampshire as well Rome and Viterbo, Italy.

From choral soloist in Mozart’s Requiem, to Jamie Lockheart in the light hearted bluegrass musical, “The Robber Bridegroom.” Performing Bud Frump in “How to Succeed in Business Without Even Trying” moving to the seasonal Off-Broadway show, “A Christmas Rapping” back to Bustopher Jones in “CATS”, being asked to sing Marcello in “La Boheme” in Italy.

Not wanting to define himself as just Classical or Opera or Musical Theater but just wanting to spread his voice to audiences, theater patrons, and all lovers of the arts, wherever he goes.
