Daniel Tague – Pianist
Pianist Daniel received his Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance from Hope College in 2021. Since 2017, he has performed and accompanied for voice students and choirs throughout West Michigan, and his time at Hope brought many other collaborative opportunities including winning Hope’s Concerto-Aria competition in 2019.

Daniel’s piano teachers and mentors have included Andrew Le, David Keep, Clara Christian, and Dwayne Huff, and he is thankful to all of his mentors, teachers, and professors that helped him become the musician he is today and encouraged him to never stop learning.
