He continued to work with Orchestras in the UK, a memorable highlight being the performance of a new work by Edmund Rubbra with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen. He has since appeared with many Orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra and, more recently, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
For the Millennium Festival at the National Indoor Arena David was commissioned to compose the music for the opening ceremony.
Other Commissions include composing for the City of Birmingham Choir Festival held in Symphony Hall Birmingham, Music for Her Majesty the Queens State Visits and music for the Bishops Inauguration Ceremony, commissioned by the Royal College of Church Music. He also composes for the ABRSM Brass exam syllabus.

In the Brass Band field he has conducted many bands including the Black Dyke Mills band, the GUS Band, Brighouse & Rastrick and Grimethorpe Colliery.

Following an opportunity to score a drama production in America (The Lake. 1987) David has worked as a composer on many television and radio productions including 'A Christmas Carol' .
