Richard Davis is a conductor and principal flute with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.  He  regularly conducts professional orchestras in concerts, recordings, radio broadcasts and on television. He has also directed operas and requiem masses with the BBC Singers.

Richard is known for his wide-ranging repertoire, allowing him to conduct projects across many genres – from television soundtracks and Family Concerts at the Bridgewater Hall to recording avant-garde world premieres and performing the symphonies of Mahler and Dvorak.

Richard's book: Becoming an Orchestral Musician – A Guide for Aspiring Professionals, sells world-wide and has been described as ‘an unbeatable-value master class’ (Classical Music Magazine) containing 'Brilliance and honesty on every page' (Pan Magazine) offering a ‘down-to-earth, informative introduction to life as a professional musician’ (Daily Telegraph).
