David Barnes - Principal Double Bass

David Barnes - Principal Double Bass

24 October 2011

David has been playing double bass for many years having progressed from clarinet while at secondary school.  In 1979 David toured Australia with the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra, playing in Melbourne, in Canberra for the Governor General, and as part of the first British orchestra to play in Sydney Opera House.  He has played with the FSO on and off since 1977.

David plays around the country with an orchestra based at All Souls Church in Central London, with the Hampshire Sinfonia and a number of local ensembles.

The clarinet is a much easier instrument to carry.
