David Schwartz

David Schwartz was born in Gary, Indiana – yes, of Michael Jackson and “Music Man” fame. As an orchestral musician, David performs regularly with the Colorado Bach Ensemble and Pro Music Chamber Orchestra and freelances with regional orchestras from Denver to Greeley. Before moving to Denver, he played with the Chicago Civic Orchestra, Dayton Philharmonic, the Columbus Bach Ensemble, Springfield Symphony, Richmond (IN) Symphony, Sorg Opera, the Kentucky Symphony, and other regional orchestras in central and southwest Ohio. David is also an avid chamber musician, having performed children’s and outreach concerts with the Dayton Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet for many years, as well as having been a founding member of numerous other trios and quintets. He also spent more than a decade writing published reviews of new international and domestic recordings of bassoon, oboe, and
chamber music for the American Record Guide, and has taught beginner to pre-college bassoon students. In addition to his bassoon performance training from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, David is an economist with a California-based consulting firm, Economic Planning Systems. In that capacity, he spends his time developing quantitative ways to measure the social and economic impacts of industries, like nonprofits, and working with cities around the US and develop policies to get more affordable housing built. Residing in Denver, David and his wife, Kylie, try desperately not to encourage their son, George, not to play the bassoon!
