Dr David Price is an Organist and Master of the Choristers at Portsmouth Cathedral. Before he came to Portsmouth he was an Assistant Organist of Ely Cathedral having previously held Organ Scholarships at Rochester Cathedral and Croydon Minster.
Since being in Portsmouth, the Cathedral’s music profile has reached new heights, leading to twelve international tours, recordings and regular work for the BBC and ITV. He is pleased to have lead vocal training sessions for other choirs and has recently worked in this capacity for the Diocese of Berlin and with the choir of Pembroke College, Oxford.
In addition to his duties at the cathedral, he is Chairman of RSCM Portsmouth and Vice-President of Portsmouth and District Organists' Association.
