About Me

DAVID LEE GROSSMAN is a Charleston-based composer, orchestrator, arranger, and conductor specializing in music for film and video games. He is a graduate of Westminster Choir College and the Seattle Film Institute, where he studied under two-time Emmy Award-winning composer Hummie Mann. He has composed and recorded scores for the indie films Charlie Mike, Idiosyncratic, and Jerad Davis Throws a Dinner Party, and has conducted seven recording sessions of original scores including a 52-piece orchestra session at Bastyr University Chapel.

David played his first handbell at the age of three. After attending a Christmas concert by his aunt’s church bell choir, she brought him up to meet some of the ringers and see the bells. He rang a bass bell (with help, of course!), and his love of ringing was born. He played in a handchime choir in middle school, where he wrote his first handbell composition for the choir to perform in their spring concert, and participated in several AGEHR summer events in high school. At Westminster, he was a member of the famous Westminster Concert Bell Choir for two years, and toured around the Great Lakes and through the Midwest and Texas. He currently rings with the Bethany UMC Chancel Bells and Palmetto Bronze, and serves as Palmetto Bronze’s vice president. He has also taught classes on musicality and visual presentation for the Lowcountry Handbell Workshop. He has participated in numerous area, national, and international handbell events, including College Ring-Ins, International Handbell Symposia, Distinctly Bronze, and National Seminars.

David is also an avid choral singer, and currently sings with the Charleston Men’s Chorus, the Charleston Symphomy Orchestra Chorus, and the CSO Chamber Choir for their annual Messiah performances.
