David Arcus begins as Interim Director of Music!
5th May 2014
 
 

We are very pleased to welcome to our team this week Dr David Arcus, who has flown all the way from the USA - where he has lived and worked at Duke University from 1984 until January of 2014 - to be our Interim Director of Music for this Trinity Term!

During his time at Duke University, Dr Arcus served as Director of Music of Duke Divinity School, as well as Chapel Organist and Associate University Organist. He has recently been appointed Parish Musician of St Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Hillsborough, North Carolina.

 

I am honored to be welcomed by the All Saints Parish community, and am delighted to have an opportunity to serve as Interim Music Director for All Saints' outstanding music programme. Particularly because now is a time of transition for the programme's leadership, the enthusiastic devotion and high standards already set by Mr. Dunleavy and the choristers are essential to the Parish and the broader community. I look forward to these next 10 weeks.

 

Dr Arcus holds degrees from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and the School of Music at Yale University, where he earned his Doctor of Musical Arts degree. He has received awards in composition and improvisation competitions, and he is in demand as a solo recitalist, having performed throughout the United States, Europe, and Great Britain. Dr. Arcus' recitals have included premieres of new works by well-known composers such as Aaron Jay Kernis, Dan Locklair, and Marianne Ploger. He is frequently commissioned to write new works for organ and choir, and he is also active as clinician, teacher/lecturer, and conductor. We will be privileged to hear him play our John Clare Composition Competition winning piece at its world premiere here at All Saints on May 18th!
