David W. Webber has had a multifaceted career spanning public interest legal services, nonprofit organizational management and fundraising, and public health policy advocacy. As if that were not enough, he was an avid double bassist but now restricts his music-making to the cello. Currently he is the chair of the board of directors for Network for New Music, Philadelphia’s premiere new music group, and serves on the board of the Musical Fund Society of Philadelphia, which is celebrating its bicentennial in 2020. His latest book, The Music of Friends: 75 Years of the Chamber Music Conference and Composers’ Forum of the East, will be released in July 2020. He lives in Mt. Airy with his wife, Jeannine.
