David Hogan (composer)
David Hogan (b. July 1, 1949 in Nokesville, Virginia – d.July 17, 1996 off East Moriches, New York) was a composer and musical director of CIGAP -- Le Choeur Int'l Gai de Paris -- a choir composed of men who loved music and wanted to show pride in their identity as gay men.
A native of Virginia, Hogan graduated from the Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University with a bachelor's degree in 1971, and would go on to earn a master's degree in voice in 1975. He would later help in the founding of The Walden School, a summer program based on the campus of Dublin School in Dublin, New Hampshire.
When the previous musical director of CIGAP resigned three weeks before its auditions, Hogan was tapped to fill in the position. During his tenure, he was responsible for bringing the CIGAP members into shape, chorally and vocally.
