David is equally happy singing in the opera house or on the concert platform; on an airfield or in a subterranean cellar; in a circus tent or in the pub. Having had a life long love affair with jazz.

He performs regularly with Opera Australia Chorus. Recent highlights include Barry Kosky's vivacious production of The Noseby Shostakovic and OA's first 'digital' production, Aida.
