David A. Fanning


Hailed by The Washington Post as a conductor "with a superlative understanding of the human voice and, especially, orchestra," David A. Fanning is a highly sought-after musician with extensive experience across a broad spectrum of musical genres and ensembles. His accomplishments include conducting symphony and chamber orchestra performances in the United States, Europe, and South America; directing opera and musical theatre productions; performing as a piano soloist and accompanist; and composing commissioned works.

Reviews of Dr. Fanning’s work are overwhelmingly positive. The Washington Post recently called his "sensibility of tempos and his communication with instrumentalists and singers alike foundational for success." Dr. Fanning also receives high praise from the instrumentalists and vocalists with whom he works; one musician writes: “[Maestro Fanning] is an exceptional combination of an excellent musician, an efficient rehearsal director, and a respectful leader who values the musicians he directs… [he] is a rarity among conductors.”
