Welcome to David Benjamin Music
curating the live music of the north shore and cape ann!
The name DAVID BENJAMIN is synonymous with music in Gloucester. He directs concerts, produces concert series, teaches young and adult students, conducts concerts all over the North Shore and generally promotes “Community Music” wherever he goes. He retired in 2012 as the Director of the Elementary and Middle School Bands and the String program in the Gloucester Public Schools; where he administered the staff and recruited the students. He then prepared them for many performances in the community during the school year.
David is the retired (January 2018) business manager for the Cape Ann Symphony, serving in that capacity since 1981. This was some of his most fulfilling work. The orchestra performs four series concerts and one youth concert each year. Mr. B, as he is known, was the “chief cook and bottle washer”, taking care of many of the tasks involved in running the orchestra. He played clarinet with the orchestra as well. Week-ends may find him performing with a variety of different bands through out the North Shore or performing as a soloist in a church service.
David is also the Conductor of the Cape Ann Community Band and the North Shore Concert Band, which perform an annual series of free outdoor concerts. Brass bands have been a tradition on the North Shore for well over 150 years. Thanks to Dave, that tradition continues.
