David Davis 1951-2006

David Davis was born in Nova Scotia and educated at Dalhousie and McGill Universities. He came to Hamilton in 1984 as Organist and Choir Master at Christ’s Church Cathedral and Artistic Director of the Hamilton Children’s Choir. David led this highly acclaimed Choral group for 17 years and then in 2002 took on a different challenge as Music Director of the Canadian Orpheus Male Choir. At the same time he was Organist and Choir Master at St Luke’s Anglican Church in Burlington and Artistic Director of the Ars Antiqua Chamber Choir in Burlington.

In addition to his musical abilities David will be remembered with fondness for his eccentricities, his zest for life and his wonderful quirky sense of humor. His youthful enthusiasm was infectious.

David Davis was passionate about promoting the value of music in our lives and encouraging the development of musical talent.
To honour David’s memory and to celebrate his life, a Fund with Hamilton Community Foundation has been established by the Canadian Orpheus Male Choir and the Hamilton Children’s Choir.
