Nom du producteur
David Clark, a musician, was born in England around 1947 to a musician father.
Clark moved to Montreal in 1968. He received a Bachelor of Music (Performance) from McGill University in 1972. As a student, he played with the McGill Jazz Workshop. Adept in both classical music and jazz, Clark worked as a saxophonist, clarinetist, orchestral arranger and conductor, performing with various well-known orchestras, including the Canada Symphony Orchestra, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Andrew Homzy Jazz Orchestra, and others. Clark was a member of Walter Boudreau’s Quatuor de saxophones de Montréal / Montreal Saxophone Quartet for 15 years, until the 1990s. During the 1990s, Clark spent several summers working as the musical director and bandleader on the cruise ship Amerikanis. Clark also worked as a music teacher at both Vanier College and Concordia University. He taught at Concordia University until 2009 and at Vanier College until 2014. In the 1980s and 1990s, David Clark was a member of the Fossils Club of Montreal, which was founded in 1926 by a group of Westmount High School graduates. Its annual musical productions allowed the club to raise money to allow for underprivileged children in Montreal to attend summer camp. During the 1980s and 1990s, Clark created arrangements and served as conductor for several of the Fossils’ productions. The club existed until around 1996. Clark also played with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal at Carnegie Hall in New York City, a performance that he considers to be the apex of his career.
David Clark died on September 4, 2015, at the age of 68.
