About the Performer
Described as playing with “impeccable, flawless, magic technique” by the Classical Voice of North Carolina, David Jernigan has performed solo organ recitals in many of the world’s most famous churches including St. Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Cathedral and Westminster Abbey, London; Truro and Bristol Cathedrals, UK; Bordeaux Cathedral, France; the Cathedral of St. John the Divine and St. Paul’s Chapel of Trinity Wall St., New York City; St. Philips’ Cathedral, Atlanta, and the National Cathedral, Washington D.C.
He has made several appearances with The North Carolina Symphony, and was their featured guest artist and soloist in the 2020 Holiday program. David holds degrees in performance from East Carolina and Yale Universities where his primary teachers were Janette Fishell, Colin Andrews, Martin Jean and Thomas Murray. He has also studied in extended residencies with Ludger Lohmann and Dame Gillian Weir.
David’s love for music of the Anglican choral tradition has led him to train and conduct choirs involving child/youth choristers, enthusiastic amateurs, and fully professional, degreed musicians who perform on a world stage. He has conducted choral residencies at Westminster Abbey, Gloucester Cathedral and St. Paul’s Cathedral, London. In addition, he has conducted services of choral evensong at St. George’s, Windsor, Ely Cathedral, Duke University Chapel and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, as well as Mass Internationale at Notre Dame, Paris.
An active member of the Diocese of North Carolina, David served as music director for the Consecration of Bishop Sam Rodman, served as organist for the Consecration of Bishop Anne Hodges Copple, and has overseen music for Diocesan Convention.
With an increasing interest in conducting, he is founder of multiple professional vocal ensembles, including the Raleigh Bach Soloists, whose frequent performances with the North Carolina Baroque Orchestra have included complete period performances of major works by Bach and Handel such as The Christmas Oratorio, the Easter Oratorio, An Ode for St. Cecilia’s Day and, of course, The Messiah.
David serves as the organist/choirmaster at Christ Church, Raleigh, where he oversees a robust choral program that sings weekly services of choral eucharist and choral evensong in addition to undertaking domestic and international tours. A composer of choral music, David is published by Paraclete Press and The Ecclesial Press.
