OSO Soloist: David Daniels
David Daniels began playing the piano in his teens, recreating tunes he had heard and teaching himself to play by ear. David started serious piano study at the age of 16, when given a place at Chetham's School of Music in Manchester. At Chetham's, David studied under Nigel Pitceathly - the then Head of Keyboard - a working relationship which is still kept to this day. David now plays concerts across the North West, such as recently opening the Halifax Festival with fellow pianist Ben Smith. David is also a qualified piano tuner and restorer, and works on some of the finest instruments at the North-West's most prestigious venues.
When not tuning or playing pianos, David can usually be found in his garage tinkering with a classic car (another passion of his). Currently, he is in the process of rebuilding a 1965 Volkswagen Beetle.
