David Sims (cello) studied with Gary Hoffman, Fritz Magg and Janos Starker at the IU School of Music and with Aldo Parisot at the Yale School of Music, where he was chosen to receive the Alumni Association Prize for students "who have not only excelled in their respective fields, but have also made an important contribution to the general life of the School." He has performed at the Tanglewood and Waterloo festivals as well as the North American New Music Festival in Buffalo, where for several years he was a faculty performer at the June in Buffalo Composer Seminars. A new music enthusiast, he has performed works by composers Martin Bresnick, Earle Brown, Elliott Carter, Morton Feldman, Mauricio Kagel, Bernard Rands, Roger Reynolds, Stefan Wolpe, and Bernd Alois Zimmermann, among many others.
