conducted by Dr. Davis
Whether he is holding a paintbrush or baton, Ken Davis is committed to actively producing images and sounds of extraordinary meaning and beauty. Deeply passionate about a life in the arts, he holds degrees in education, music, theology and the liberal arts. Davis completed a doctorate in conducting at the prestigious Eastman School of Music and worked for over 25 years as a college choral conductor. He has studied with Don Neuen, Roger Wagner, Alfred Mann and has sung with Robert Shaw in Atlanta, France and New York. His ensembles have toured Europe many times and have performed in Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, on The Today Show and Good Morning America, as well as, at Regional and National Conventions of the American Choral Directors Association. His faculty appointments include Western Kentucky University, Texas Tech University and St. Johns College. His life changed forever when he took a course in Plein Air painting in 2001. What began as a hobby, became a passion and is now an obsession. Since that time he has pursued serious study with Albert Handell, Matt Smith, Richard McKinley and Kevin Macpherson. He recently made the decision to undertake painting full time and now spends the majority of his time painting in the field or working in the studio. He remains active as a guest conductor and workshop clinician, and is thrilled to conduct the professional Dallas-based choir, The Ken Davis Chorale.
