David Taylor Spring/Summer Schedule

I’m very lucky to live and work in New York. I’ve had the opportunity to play music in all styles with very fine musicians from all over the world. Probably the luckiest thing to have happened to me, with a lot of risk-taking over the years, was being able to work as a recording musician in all genres while developing my solo and chamber music career.

Except for the teaching and my two regular summer orchestral gigs (going on for some 25 years) the following schedule is in addition to my “normal” NY freelance work activities.
