Norman David & COMBO THEORY

Norman David presents his quartet Combo Theory in an exciting performance of his provocative compositions. The quartet plays with the same unique energy and originality as his electrifying large ensemble The Eleventet, a mainstay on the Philadelphia jazz scene for well over 20 years now.

Norman David has performed extensively with jazz artists and ensembles at clubs, theaters, and festivals in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. He has been awarded grants for his jazz composing from the National Endowment for the Arts and the American Composers Forum. He is also a composer of modern classical chamber music, with several commissions and premieres. He is the Coordinator of Jazz Composition and Arranging at Temple University’s Boyer College of Music & Dance, and has previously taught at Berklee College of Music, University of the Arts, and the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Arts.
