David joined Doorway Singers for Dickens' Christmas in 2019 and doesn't plan to retire from the group until his vocal chords give out! He started his musical journey in elementary school with the All City Choir, then he was hooked and couldn't wait for more opportunities to perform. He has been part of groups such as Virginia All-State Choir and Senior Honors Choir in high school, and the advanced chorus while studying Vocal Performance at Virginia Tech. In addition, he was a part of Naturally Sharp, an all male A Capella group when they were selected for the Best of College A Capella CD with a chilling rendition of "Wake Me Up" (Google it!). David later became music director for the group and assisted in arranging and recording their CD. Now, he's back in the a capella and choir world, and he's ready to hit the ground running!
