David concertizes regularly with ensembles including the Sebastians, Mercury Chamber Orchestra, Yale Schola Cantorum, New York Baroque Incorporated, Trinity Wall Street, Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity, and Early Music New York. In the year prior to the pandemic he also performed with Opera Lafayette, Teatro Nuovo, and the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra. This season includes concerts with The Sebastians, Three Notch’d Road and the Handel & Haydn Society.

David was among the last generation to study baroque flute with Wilbert Hazelzet at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in The Hague, Netherlands where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Early Music.
