David Campbell


David Campbell has been busy composing and orchestrating serious music since 1975, and has experience in many aspects of the industry. His very first orchestral composition was Symphony # 1 in 1980, and since then he has gone on to write pieces for orchestra, chamber ensembles and solo instruments. 

After several years of free-lance work across Canada he settled in Toronto where he studied composition, arranging and orchestration at Humber College of Music (1985-91). After graduation he spent another two years studying orchestration and composition with Ron Collier (student of George Russell and Gordon Delamont). Initially he worked orchestrating and copying music for others, as well as doing his own works, until 1993 when his orchestral arrangement of "Devil In The Kitchen" was featured at the Thunder Bay Symphony's 1993 premiere. Since then he has received grants and commissions for three string quartets, two symphonies and a score of smaller pieces.

Currently he divides his time between writing serious music for a variety of ensembles and working for Fiction Music Productions, a music for TV and Film company.
