ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In June of 2006 David McDonald completed a 30 year teaching career, after having taught 4th, 5th and 6th grades during that time. Prior to his teaching career he graduated cum-laude from Brockport State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree and went on to earn a Masters Degree in Education from Nazareth College, Rochester, NY (1979).

Throughout his teaching career, David was also active both recording and performing. David released a 45 single in 1979 of his songs "What a Life to be a Cowboy" and "Why Do You Treat Me Like You Do", and in 1980 he released "Christmas Spirit" and "Winter Song". During the 80's and 90's David performed many concerts, often in schools but also public concerts as well. Highlights of the school concerts included doing the holiday songs
along with a 240 voice choir under the direction of Mr. Fred DiCesare in the early 80's, as well as numerous other Holiday concerts.

David performed the first concert ever at the new performing arts stage at Ontario Beach Park, and this concert was later simulcast on television and radio, the first time that had been done in Rochester. Other concerts were also broadcast live on Public Television's WXXI.

In 2005 David decided to digitally re-record,
"Christmas Spirit"and "Winter Song", along with his new composition "Hear the Bells", using state of the art technology at Dynamic Recording Studios. Working with Master Engineer Aaron Ripley, David spent 10 months in the studio working towards accomplishing the highest possible quality achievable with contemporary technology. The songs can now be heard on the CD "Christmas Spirit", with clarity and production values never before possible.
