About Ted Davis

Theodore S. (Ted) Davis has been based Baltimore, Maryland since 2003 following a nearly 20-year career including previous positions in Richmond, VA, and Cambridge, MA. He holds music degrees in organ performance from Birmingham-Southern College (Birmingham, AL), choral conducting from Northwestern University (Evanston, IL), and harpsichord from the Longy School of Music (Cambridge, MA). He is currently a doctoral candidate and teaching assistant at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore.

Ted is an active organ and harpsichord soloist and collaborative performer. As a soloist he has performed throughout the Eastern US. He has achieved national recognition in organ-playing competitions, and is an active composer with works printed by two publishers. Other musical interests have led to studies in a cappella vocal music with the Western Wind of New York, as well as studies in vocal and instrumental music with the medieval and renaissance consort Sirinu of England, and baroque ensembles The Parley of Instruments, also of England, and Tafelmusik of Toronto. He has also served as assistant to the music directors in Baroque opera productions at the Boston Early Music Festival and the Amherst Early Music Festival.

Ted has been organist and choirmaster at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Baltimore since 2005. As part of the music series he has established, he conducts the church choir in choral Evensong services, presents an annual “Bach at St. Bartholomew’s” series (solo music for organ and harpsichord), and conducts choral concerts. In the latter, the church choir is joined by additional singers from the community and orchestra, performing works which have recently included Brahms’ Requiem, Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, Beethoven’s Mass in C, and, with period instruments, Handel’s Messiah, cantatas of J.S. Bach, Purcell’s Ode for St. Cecilia’s Day, and Monteverdi’s Vespers (1610).
