About David L. McIntyre
Composer and pianist David L. McIntyre has spent his life on the Canadian prairies. Born in Edmonton in 1950, raised in Saskatoon and Calgary, David has worked in Regina since 1976. He counts pianist Boris Roubakine and composer Luigi Zaninelli among his most influential mentors. He taught piano and composition until 1995 at the Canadian Bible College, and later at the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan. For three years he served as composer-in-residence with the Regina Symphony Orchestra. An Associate Composer of the Canadian Music Centre, David is one of Canada’s leading composers of music for the piano. A Wild Innocence was the imposed piece for the 2011 Piano edition of the Montreal International Musical Competition. Butterflies & Bobcats, the imposed piece for the 2004 Egré Competition is now performed and broadcast worldwide. David is himself a respected pianist and frequent collaborator with many fine singers and instrumentalists. His CDs include collaborations with Sophie Bouffard, Lynn Channing, William Clark, John Griffiths, and Regina’s Contrasts trio and the Prairie Pride Chorus. He has devoted much time to vocal, choral and chamber music and has a growing catalogue of music in these genres.

He enjoys his participation as organist at St. Paul’s Anglican Cathedral in Regina and nurtures a love of architecture and cooking.
