Chamber Choir Ireland Wrote;
Founder of Chamber Choir Ireland (formerly National Chamber Choir) after the RTÉ Chamber Choir, and solely responsible for the golden choral period in the 1980s in Ireland as Choral Director at RTÉ establishing the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir and RTÉ Cór na nÓg as well as the Chamber Choir.
The excellence in choral music in Ireland would not be what it is today without Colin’s passion for choral education and excellence and his drive to create and grow the choral sector.
Our choral world is poorer at the loss of Colin. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family and close friends.
