DAVID M. GLASGOW (he/him/his) is a Pennsylvania-based pianist, vocalist, composer, actor, and educator.  He holds a B.A. (cum laude) in music theory and composition from Dickinson College and an M.Div. from Lancaster Theological Seminary.

Over the course of his three decades as a professional musician, he has performed, accompanied, and directed classical repertory (including composers such as Josquin and Ockeghem, Mozart and Beethoven, Lauridsen and Whitacre); jazz (Ellington, Hancock, Coltrane, Gillespie); gospel (Smallwood, Franklin); and pop (Mraz, Mars, P!nk, Bareilles).  As an actor, he has appeared onstage as “Dr. Neville Craven” in Secret Garden, “Billy” in Anything Goes, and the diaper-clad title role of Bat Boy: The Musical.  His credits as Musical Director include Into the Woods, Pippin, Lucky Stiff, and The Spitfire Grill—along with “two-hat” roles in Godspell (musical director and “Jesus”) and Fun Home (musical director and “Bruce”).

As a composer, David’s choral, vocal, and instrumental works have been heard worldwide at a variety of schools, colleges, universities, churches, and concert venues; and the Three Twelve album Something Begun features eleven Glasgow originals, with David on vocals and keyboards.

After teaching at Dickinson College for a decade and serving as the first director of the Alsedek Theatre School in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, David now maintains a thriving studio of private students in voice, piano, and music theory, dividing his time between his home studio in Boiling Springs and a satellite studio at The Perfect 5th Musical Arts Center in Mechanicsburg.  He has made a name for himself among the capital area music and theatre community as a wise mentor in vocal technique; musical interpretation; script and character study; and the synergistic relationship between musical artistry and personal identity.  His students range in age from 6 to 64.

David is also a lifetime member of the Association for Unitarian Universalist Music Ministries, and is currently serving as chair of the Music Review Team in preparation for the launch of the Unitarian Universalist Association’s first Digital Hymnal, projected for 2025.

David and his husband Mark celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2020, and share a home in Boiling Springs, PA, with their three feline “kids”: Sophia, Stewart, and Jake.
