Faculty of Music


David Onaç

As a composer, David has worked with the BBC Philharmonic, BBC Singers, Belgian violinist Marc Danel, international bass trombonist Jonathan Warburton and pianist Peter Donohoe, and had works performed in Stockholm, Brussels, Virginia (USA) and the UK. He often performs his own pieces, such as Ayla (a 20-minute work for violin and piano dedicated to his goddaughter), and Newton’s Cradle (a virtuosic piano concerto premiered in the 2012 New Music Northwest Festival at the RNCM). Since childhood, he has also had a keen interest in jazz and gospel, and co-directs Manchester Harmony Gospel Choir (finalists in University Gospel Choir of the Year 2012).

The Faculty’s series of Composers’ Workshops is open to students of all years of the undergraduate course as well as masters and doctoral students, indeed to anyone with an interest in the creation of new music. Because space is limited please email John Hopkins ( if you are not a Faculty member and wish to attend.
