Kahane studied piano and conducting at the San Francisco Conservatory and entered the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 1981.

Kahane soon became a favored accompanist for Yo-Yo Ma, Dawn Upshaw, and Joshua Bell. In 1987, Kahane was awarded the first Andrew Wolf Chamber Music Award.

The success of this appearance opened the door to Kahane's second career as a conductor.

In 1991, Kahane founded the Gardner Chamber Orchestra in Boston, a group of young professionals and students in Boston, and led it for four years. In 1995 Kahane was named music director of the Santa Rosa (California) Symphony Orchestra, a well-respected regional orchestra, largely made up of professional musicians from the nearby greater San Francisco area.
