David Snell is a British harpist and conductor.

His first professional post was as harpist with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, later joining the Orchestra Of The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

While working for the music libraries he also played on the recordings of many of the era's musical directors and arrangers such as Alan Hawkshaw, Keith Mansfield and John Cameron (2).

Snell still works as a professional musician, mainly as conductor with The London Symphony Orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Orchestre De Paris, and also conducting the scores for films including "Cider House Rules", "Emma" and "Chocolat", among others.
