David Gresham has served as Director of Choral Activities at Brevard College for the past five years. During that time, he has greatly increased participation in the choirs and has overseen a significant influx of voice majors at the College. He is a frequent guest clinician, and he enjoys helping singers work toward a vibrant and healthy vocal tone while exploring the musical demands of choral literature. In Brevard, he also serves as Artistic Director and Conductor of the Tranyslvania Choral Society and as Minister of Music at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd.
Dr. Gresham has composed, edited, and arranged several pieces for choir, including his edition of Hodie Nobis de Coelo, a work for double chorus with a realized continuo by 16th-century composer Peter Phillips that has now sold over 25,000 copies (available through Alliance Music). In addition to his conducting and composing, Dr. Gresham is an active singer and studio teacher. He is the current president of the North Carolina Chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and has had students perform for that organization at the state, regional, and national level. As a singer, he has been most active as an oratorio soloist and recitalist. Having a keen interest in contemporary compositions, he has worked with several composers on recording projects and frequently performs new works in recital.
