Director

The Sounds of Pittsburgh Chorus is pleased to have David Wallace as our director since 2011.

Prior to becoming our director, he directed the Heart of Ohio Show Chorus from 2004-2011. He began his career with the Sweet Adelines organization as the director of the “City of Flags” women’s chorus, where he directed the chorus to six regional championships and a top ten international finish. Achieving the level of master director, he was the first to be awarded this honor in the Lake Erie Region, which includes parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Indiana.

Wallace began his choral directing major at Bowling Green State University where he was the assistant director for the BGSU Men’s Chorus and was the  first-ever undergraduate director of an accredited university chorus, “The Collegiates.” He was introduced to quartet singing when he was selected as baritone in the university’s “Varsity Quartet.”  As lead singer with “The Rapscallions,” they achieved the highest possible honor of International Champion Quartet in 1984, subsequently performing in all contiguous states, Canada and Europe.

Besides directing and performing, Wallace’s arrangements of barbershop music for men and women are often performed and recorded internationally, including numerous performances on the International competition stage. He also is a published arranger of sacred choral music.

He currently also  directs the “Legacy Family Singers”, a mixed voice accompanied secular chorus in Cleveland, Ohio.
