Acoustic Concerts

Classical Music



Greetings from the Pacific Rim.

For more than 40 years I traveled the world as an opera and concert tenor and there is plenty of information in this website about all that, via the links on the sidebar to the left.

I no longer sing on the classical stage, but my life-long parallel solo career continues to keep me securely strapped to my acoustic guitar. More details about my acoustic concerts here.

In 2017 I published The Little Bach Book, a unique and surprising look at everyday life in Leipzig in the early-18th-century era of J.S. Bach. It has sold thousands of copies all over the world. There's no other book like it. Learn more...

For two decades I have translated the texts of great choral works and created English-language supertitle projections for musical organizations all over North America. Learn more...

David and his guitar

In 2012 I co-founded Lucky Valley Press with my wife, Ginna Gordon. Since then we've edited and designed nearly 100 books by 60 independent authors. Ginna and I enjoy helping writers turn their ideas into books.

My book, Carmel Impresarios, tells the story of the two extraordinary women who became leaders in art, architecture, music, and theater in early Carmel, California, and founded the Carmel Bach Festival in 1935. With 400 pages, 300 vintage illustrations, footnoted, it's a definitive account of music and theater in early Carmel. More info here...
