Composing/Arranging

David is currently the main arranger for Rhapsody QuinteHaitit, adapting music from classical, pop, jazz, tango, or other genres for the unique instrumentation of this group.  David’s arrangement of Bohemian Rhapsody received the only standing ovation from the audience of 10,000 people at the Halifax for Haiti concert in 2010.

David has also created arrangements for Symphony Nova Scotia in concert with Daniel Matto, and for other classical groups such as Halifax Male Voice choir, Nova Voce.  David also creates arrangements for classical instruments in theSgtP_644 songs of East Coast Artists, the largest collaboration to date being the Sgt Pepper concert of 2015, involving over a dozen prominent guest artists and dancers performing the classic Beatles album.passion

Since 2004 David has also found some time to indulge in composition.  His latest works include “The Limpet and Her Rock” for female chorus, piano, cello and bass, performed by The Aeolian singers in 2015 and “The Four Seasons of Nova Scotia (Nearly Winter, Winter, Still Winter and Road Repair Season)” as recorded by Rhapsody Quintet on their last CD, Passion.  David is always open to new commissions and ideas for collaboration.
