From Josie Quick: My heart is heavy today, although there was distance between us, Daniel was always close in my heart.
I played my violin for him yesterday. I hope it eased his passage. God speed, my friend.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of longtime Master Chorale singer Daniel Chaney. After a long and valiant fight with cancer, Daniel passed away last night. He will be remembered by his friends and colleagues for his beautiful tenor voice and his love, spirit and friendship. Rest in peace, Daniel.
