Very active in chamber music circles, Munday has performed at the Marlboro, Santa Fe and Chamber Music Northwest music festivals. He was a member of Musical Offering, a Baroque ensemble formed by principal players of LACO. The group recorded three albums for Nonesuch Records and toured the US, Canada and Puerto Rico, performing at the Festival Casals. As principal bassoon, Munday performed and recorded several albums at the Oregon Bach Festival including Kristof Pendereki’s Credo, which won a Grammy award.

Munday performs with Musica Angelica on period instruments of the Baroque and Classical eras. In March 2016, he appears with San Francisco’s Philharmonia Baroque.

A veteran session musician in Los Angeles, Munday has played on television and film scores for many years. He can be heard on the John Williams soundtrack of Star Wars VII. Munday has recorded Luciano Berio’s Sequenza XII for solo bassoon for Naxos. The work demands many special techniques, including that the performer circular-breathe for 19 minutes. Impressively, Munday recorded it in two complete takes.

He is married to Jennifer Munday, a member of LACO’s first violin section. Their daughter, Marika, attends USC.
