David Erik Peterson is a proud member of AEA and AGMA and holds music degrees from SFSU and WVU. He recently moved back to LA after a decade in the SF Bay Area where he sang bass with the SF Symphony Chorus and Cappella SF, played percussion with Gamelan X, and was the Music Director for Piccola Carolers.
David has played Jesus and Judas in productions of Jesus Christ Superstar, was the bass section representative to the Hollywood Master Chorale, and fronted the progressive rock band Pattern Interrupt. In musical theater, most recently he played the role of Dennis in Rock of Ages with Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre in Pleasanton, CA and the role of Berger in HAiR at San Francisco’s Great Star Theater. David created and sings bass in the Wine & Cheese Messiah, an annual one-on-a-part Handel’s Messiah. He originated the roles of Jim Jones in Heaven Down Here, Jack Kerouac in Ginsberg in Song, and Darko in How to Survive the Apocalypse: a Burning Opera. He currently sings with the Meistersingers, Nova Vocal Ensemble, the Goode Time Carolers, and the St. Augustine-by-the-Sea Chamber Singers. Looking forward, he plans to continue to perform in musicals, start a vocal studio and a rock’n’roll band, sing with the LA Master Chorale, build a voiceover business and hot sauce empire, get good at surfing, and raise a family. He’d like to thank his beautiful fiancee Nashua for her love and support.
