A Different Kind of Cantor

Meet Cantor Daniel Pincus

A well-rounded musician, singer, Jewish service leader, wedding officiant, drummer, pocket billiards enthusiast, and.....?



My goal is to always provide you with quality experiences and performance in every area - Jewish weddings, Jewish worship services, bnei mitzvah training, funeral services, classical music singing, music education, shofar lessons, and billiards training...

If you are here for weddings, please do look through the many reviews below.

Pictured here was the group that gathered for a "Shofaron," a study session dedicated to the study of Shofar, the Jewish sacred horn.  Over the years, I have become an enthusiast and scholar of the shofar, particularly about how to sound it beautifully and accurately.  I am proud to have coined this term Shofaron, never before used.

My career began as a singer of classical music, but all the while was drawn to the psychological, the sacred, the spiritual.  Becoming a Cantor in midlife, I served several congregations, but, by choice, no longer do so.  For five years, my employment was a Spiritual Support Counselor both at a major NYC rehab and nursing home facility, where I led drum circles.  Also, I worked a few years  in a hospice.  Now, I lead classical music and arts programs for seniors, perform weddings and Jewish worship services, and something else quite unusual, described below...  

When I am not singing, leading music appreciation classes for seniors, or performing cantorial duties, I enjoy many activities, including cooking, working out, drum circles, and playing pocket billiards, so much so that I am now a Recognized Instructor with the Professional Billiard Instructors Association.  

Wedding in Central Park

In the rain of November, we all crowded into the Cos Cot pavilion in New York's Central Park for the wedding ceremony.  We brought the sunshine in!

Over the years, Cantor Pincus has sung the National Anthem at sporting events:

Wedding and Other Testimonials

Weddings on Saturday - Only after 6pm

Cantor Pincus showed up in the pouring rain to officiate our wedding at Central Park. Words can not express how lucky we are to have had him there. He organized a canopy of umbrellas and absolutely delivered! Nobody even noticed the weather as Cantor Pincus turned the freezing rain storm into a warm and unforgettable day for us. He is a true professional. In the days leading up to our wedding, Cantor Pincus also took the time to get to know us over Skype. We could sense that he took his role seriously and we felt much more at ease knowing how much he cared. He really went above and beyond for us. Thank you Daniel for everything!  - Ryan and R. 

Cantor Daniel Pincus officiated our wedding ,and he did a wonderful job. I am so happy I chose him everyone said what a beautiful ceremony it was. He also did it in spanish and it was amazing. I recomend him to anyone looking to get married.  - Mr. And Mrs. S.

Cantor Pincus, Thank you so much. The ceremony was so special and it went exactly as discussed. Again, thank you for marrying us.  - Jocelyn and R. 

Working with Cantor Pincus was nothing less than a revelation. When we’d asked him to officiate -- neither of us were observant of the Jewish traditions and yet we wanted to be married under the Chuppah. Cantor Dan spent many hours with us looking at what was important to us and what we wanted to create as a result not only of our marriage but in the world. The ultimate ceremony was beautiful, moving and memorable. Not only was it an extraordinary beginning to our life together but as a result of our experience with Dan we found ourselves more and more drawn to our roots and to the Jewish traditions.  - Barbara and K. 

We can’t say enough about Cantor Dan – he’s brilliant, sensitive and just the best possible officiant you could have to start your lives together. - Rich 

Thanks so much. We had a wonderful time, and thought the ceremony went very well. You and Father Rick did a fantastic job! Thanks for everything.  - Jeff and J.  

It was a pleasure to work with Cantor Pincus. He helped emphasize the importance of the ceremony as well as ensure we were prepared. It was especially nice that he took the time to get to know my fiance and me so that he could speak about us personally.  - David

Cantor Pincus helped us think about what my husband and I meant to each other and skillfully incorporated those ideas into our wedding ceremony. - Andrea

Cantor Daniel is amazing!!! I am so happy he was the one to do our marriage ceremony! He is professional, caring and extremely involved! The ceremony wouldn’t have been as special if it wasn’t for Cantor Daniel. Highly recommended!!  - Natalie

Cantor Pincus officiated our wedding and it was a pleasure to work with him. He is very knowledgeable, kind and easy to work with. He conducted a beautiful and meaningful ceremony for us and everybody loved it. It was also very easy to get in touch with him and he answers promptly. I highly recommend Cantor Pincus to anyone looking for a wedding ceremony officiant!!  - Eugenia and E. 

Dan Pincus has the voice of an angel. He brought deep experience as a musician and cantor to our interactions in selecting both traditional pieces we added to our ceremony, as well as other musical selections we integrated into the procession and the reception. He was an excellent addition to the overall event and collaborated well with other players and clergy in a professional manner with enthusiasm and tact. - Iva
