Audrey Corbett

 

Audrey CorbettAudrey Corbett's musical career began in Dublin where as a pianist and organist she won many of the major awards at the Dublin Feis Ceoil and other festivals. Her interest in choral music manifested itself first, when as a music student at UCD she created the St. Stephen's Singers, an ensemble which was acclaimed both nationally and internationally on winning the BBC Radio competition 'Let the Peoples Sing' in 1971.

Since moving to Galway she has brought about the flourishing of choral music making with the formation of the Corrib Singers, an award winning female voice choir, the Galway Boys' Choir, and the Galway Baroque Singers. She is in frequent demand as a choral adjudicator and director of workshops, seminars and masterclasses and also was a member of the Board of Directors of the National Concert Hall for five years. Recognised for her outstanding contribution to music in the West of Ireland, she was a recipient of the Galway County Arts Award in 1997. She conducted the annual 'Messiah for all' in the National Concert Hall in 2001.

Audrey formed a new chamber choir, "Sunus", in 2001 with whom she has had considerable success, winning the overall Irish choir of the Festival at the Cork Choral Festival in 2003 and competing in the International Competition there in 2004.

On November 28th, 2008, Audrey was conferred with an honorary Masters in Music from NUI, Galway.
