He has subsequently devoted much of his time to mentoring young musicians. David's conducting experience includes an extensive repertoire of a cappella choral music as well major works for choir and orchestra, including Handel's Messiah, Orff's Carmina Burana, Haydn's The Creation, Mozart's Requiem, Beethoven's Mass in C and Rossini's Stabat Mater, often in association with professional orchestras. David has broadcast and recorded chamber music for the ABC and remains active as an accompanist with a particular interest in vocal repertoire.
