The New York Times wrote, “…to describe his playing would be to enumerate a catalogue of virtues.” David Singer is Co-Principal Clarinetist, Emeritus, of the Grammy Award winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and Coordinator of Chamber Music and Woodwinds/Professor of Clarinet, Emeritus, at Montclair State University in New Jersey. He participated for five years at the Marlboro Music Festival and was a former guest artist for many seasons with the Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society.
David has performed and/or recorded chamber music with Yehudi Menuhin, Rudolf Serkin, Yo Yo Ma, Yefim Bronfman and Glenn Dicterow and performed for two presidents in chamber music concerts at the White House. Grammy award winning composer Robert Aldridge wrote “Concerto for Clarinet” for David and he performed the piece with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. He recorded the work along with the Copland Concerto, which was released internationally by Naxos and American Classics. Gramophone Magazine wrote, “…Singer’s Copland performance is one of the finest accounts around.” David Singer also costarred with Stockard Channing in "The Lady and the Clarinet."
