Biography

David Hamilton (b.1955) was, until the end of 2001, Head of Music at Epsom Girls Grammar School (Auckland). He has been Deputy Music Director of Auckland Choral (1996-2011). During 1999 he was Composer-in-Residence with the Auckland Philharmonia, and took a second year’s leave from school in 2000 to pursue a number of composition projects. Returned to teaching in 2001, but resigned at the end of the year in order to concentrate on composing while maintaining part-time involvement in music education, including conducting EGGS’ award-winning girls’ choir Opus until the end of 2003.

In addition to being a composer, he is well-known as a choral conductor, workshop leader and clinician. In 2000 he was invited to be on the adjudication panel at the Takarazuka International Choral Competition (Japan), and in 2001 participated in the Asia-South Pacific Symposium on Choral Music in Singapore. He returned to Japan in 2003 as a guest adjudicator at the national final of the high schools’ choral competition. In 2005 served on the faculty of the Pacific Basin Music Festival in Hawaii, in 2009 was a judge at the Trelew International Choral Festival in Argentina, and in 2012 and 2013 was an adjudicator at the international eisteddfod in Llangollen (Wales). In 2013 he was guest composer at the national choral event Sing Aotearoa, and in 2015 composer-in-residence at the NZ Singing School.

He has had works commissioned by major orchestras, instrumental groups and choirs throughout New Zealand. His particular interest is choral music and his music is particularly popular with school and community choirs. Works have been performed in a number of places around the world including Japan, Germany, Canada, USA and England, with commissions from Japan, England, Ireland, Finland, Australia and USA.

Over forty of his choral works have been published outside New Zealand, and a number have been recorded in the UK, North America and Finland. In 2000 “Veni Sancte Spiritus” won first prize in a choral composition competition organised by the University of Bologna, Italy, and in 2005 he took the NUVOVOX Choral Award in the USA with “Deus, Deus meus”. In 2006 he won the Ned Rorem Award for Song Composition (another NUVOVOX competition), and a composer’s competition organised by the NZ Flute Society. In 2007 “Hine Raukatauri”, a concerto for flute and chamber orchestra, took 1st prize in the Haifa International Composers Competition (Israel), and a setting of “The Singers” took 2nd place in the Longfellow Chorus Composers Competition (USA). In 2008 “Carol of Cold Comfort” was awarded 2nd place in The Chapter House Choir Composers’ Competition (York, England), and in 2014 “Wairua” for solo harp took 1st place in the NZ Harp Society’s competition.
