David joined the Warwick and Kenilworth Choral Society as Musical Director in November 2019. He enjoys a hugely varied career as a freelance musician. As a conductor, David is Music Director of Birmingham Festival Choral Society, Coventry Philharmonic Society and during the recent lockdowns, David was also acting MD for the Cheltenham Bach Choir.

Davis holds a master’s degree in Vocal and Operatic Performance from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, having studied singing with Henry Herford as well as receiving a scholarship to study choral conducting with Paul Spicer. He is a busy freelance baritone soloist and, up until recently, a lay clerk at St Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham and has performed several times as a musician of the Royal Shakespeare Company.

David is very involved as a visiting lecturer at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Junior Department. He teaches singing, conducting, as well as musicianship and is Choral Director of the Senior Chorus and the Vocal Ensemble.

David has worked with some of the country’s leading music education organisations, including Opera North, Wels National Opera, the Armonico Consort and Leicester and Leeds Cathedrals’ education departments. With his wife Alexandra, he co-runs (and co-founded) the St Chad’s Cathedral Junior Choir and the extensive Choral Outreach Programme which sees him teaching choral signing to approximately 500 children a year across Birmingham.

Away from music, Davis and his wife Alexandra are proud parents to Sidney (aged 3) and Lyra (nearly 1). In his limited spare time, David enjoys playing football, cooking and walking his Dalmatian dog, Sherlock.
