David Wright

Living in: United States

David Wright has become one of the most influential musicians in the history of the BHS. He has researched the origins of barbershop harmony and, since 1986, has been teaching a course on the history of the style at the BHS annual Harmony University. Also at that educational event, David's tag-singing class has become a "must" for barbershop enthusiasts.

As a composer, arranger and historian David has been featured in national radio and TV broadcasts at home and abroad, and has authored several articles on barbershop harmony and its role in the world of vocal harmony. His work often integrates the "close harmony" style with jazz, blues, gospel, country, doo-wop and contemporary a cappella. David has been on the leadership team of the St. Charles Missouri Ambassadors of Harmony since 1981, serving as Director from 1981 to 1990, and again from 1999 to 2001. He now serves as Associate Director.
