CCCinDerryCork Chamber Choir introduce our Musical Director, Tom Crowley, a Cork native with a wide range of conducting talent and experience. We are very much looking forward to working on some exciting new projects this term and in 2018 with Tom

Tom graduated with honours from the Cork School of Music where he studied for a BMus with Adrian Petcu. During his studies, Tom spent a year on an Erasmus exchange in Bucharest where, amongst other things, his interest was sparked in conducting.

In 2012, Tom returned to Ireland having spent three years completing a Masters in orchestral conducting in Bucharest.

While in Romania, Tom studied under Maesto Dumitru Goia; a disciple of the St.Petersburg school of conducting. It is in Romania that Tom had his professional debut, with the Botosani Philharmonic. He has also conducted the National Chamber Orchestra of Moldova. Before returning home, Tom placed 2nd in the Jeunnes Musicalle International Conducting Competition in 2012.

Now based in Cork, he happily splits his time between the violin and conducting. He is the principal conductor of the Cork Concert Orchestra, conducts the Cork Chamber Choir, and works frequently with the Quercus Ensemble in Northern Ireland. He has formed a chamber orchestra in Cork; Stormport Sinfonia, with whom he has most recently recorded the soundtrack for an Irish documentary – A Doctor’s Sword. Working with various ensembles, Tom has premiered works by many composers, including C.S.L Parker, Sam Perkin, Paul Patterson, Peter Power and Sam Barker.

We are currently seeking talented singers. Contact Garret on corkchamberchoir@live.com with details of your range and experience.
