We are delighted to announce Eoin Conway as a new composer in College Choral Series. His beautiful arrangement of 'Wild Mountain Thyme' ('Will ye go Lassie go') features a tenor soloist solo tenor voice accompanied by a choral texture characterised by rich harmonies. Eoin is a countertenor, arranger, musical director and accompanist from Dublin. He earned his Master’s degree in vocal performance from the Royal Irish Academy of Music in 2016, and had previously studied composition as part of a BMus degree from NUI Maynooth.

As a choral and ensemble singer, he is a member of the choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, and a deputy singer with Det Norske Solistkor and Chamber Choir Ireland. He sings with, and is musical director of, the vocal quartet 4 in a Bar, and is co-director of the early music ensemble Peregryne. Awards for choral singing include the Choir of the World at Llangollen Eistedfodd in 2015 with Maynooth University Chamber Choir, and the Grand Prix at the Guido d’Arezzo Polifonico in 2013 with New Dublin Voices. He directs the youth and adult choirs of the Fingal Choral Programme.

As a solo singer, he has performed the roles of Peisander and Human Frailty in Opera Collective Ireland’s production of Monteverdi’s The Return of Ulysses; Nerillo in Cavalli’s Ormindo; and Fileno in Handel’s Clori, Tirsi e Fileno. He is a multiple prizewinner at the Dublin Feis Ceoil, including the Dermot Troy trophy for oratorio, and the Joseph O’Mara trophy for male voices. Other recent performances include a recital of songs by Dowland, Purcell and Muhly, with lutenist Toby Carr as part of the Music For Galway festival, Bach’s St John Passion with the Nederlands Bachkoor, and the premiere performance of Sean Doherty’s Bridal Song at Wigmore Hall, London.
