Leo H. Davis, Jr.

As a  musician, conductor, instructor, and visionary leader in his field, Leo has earned enormous respect as an artist for all seasons. His expertise ranges from the spiritual masterpieces of Moses G. Hogan to the classical treasures of Beethoven. Moreover, his music can usher an audience through centuries of praise and worship while inspiring them to raise their hands and touch the face of God here and now.

A native of Chicago, Illinois, Leo embraced the rich musical heritage of his family and began piano lessons at an early age. Today, his music credentials include a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree in church music and conducting from the University of Memphis; a Master of Music in organ performance from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, Massachusetts; a Certificate from the Royal School of Church Music, Croydon, England; and a Bachelor of Music Degree from Roosevelt University, Chicago, Illinois.

Since 1989, Leo has served as Minister of Music at the Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Memphis, TN. Under his direction, the Mississippi Boulevard Music Department has acquired an international reputation for musical excellence and versatility in worship and performance. Leo’s numerous accomplishments include co-production and project management of the Sanctuary Choir’s CD titled Live at The Boulevard featuring the expansive music ministry of Mississippi Boulevard and the Memphis Symphony Orchestra Brass and Percussion sections. He is also the producer of a single CD titled God Is Able.

His list of special projects include serving as the Executive Producer and Musical Director of the Mississippi Boulevard Music Department’s Annual Christmas Celebration Concert in collaboration with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra; Artistic Director and Producer of the Umoja Celebration, a Broadway-like cultural production that chronicles the journey from Africa to America; and Guest Conductor and Chorus Master of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra’s Sounds of Celebration Concert. In 2014, Leo will serve as the Memphis Symphony Orchestra’s Chorus Master for the Rebirth of the Dream Concert. In addition, services as the Musical Director for Children’s Sing Productions, which has helped produce tributes to Richard Smallwood, the Hawkins family and featured artists such as Chrisette Michelle and Jonathan McReynolds.
