Dennis Day

Dennis Day's musical career is rooted in his earliest experiences growing up in East Chicago, Indiana, where early musical influences included his family. His mother Irene Day was a highly esteemed gospel singer and his father was an avid whistler who loved to sing and even took singing lessons in Chicago as a young man. Family “sing- alongs” encouraged an early exposure to music that led to singing in youth choirs and music education programs throughout his early schooling and later at Fisk University and eventually the prestigious Manhattan School of Music.
