David Wolfson is an eclectic, versatile composer of songs, concert music and music for theatre, as well as other genres. The New York Times has called his work "musically inventive" and "theatrically forceful."
He has written art songs, theatre songs, comedy songs, 10-minute operas, pop songs and songs for big-headed-costumed-character amusement parks shows; he has written music for bassoon quartet, percussion ensemble, SATB chorus and cello quartet; he has composed incidental music for plays and done sound design for Macy's display windows.
