Presented by Alan Leech. 

Alan Leech is one of Ireland's leading tenors and choral practitioners. Since graduating from UCC in 1995, he has been in consistent demand as both a performer and choral specialist. Not only has Alan performed chamber music, but he has also performed with most of Ireland's leading orchestras and choirs in oratorio and concert performances. 

Apart from his performance career, Alan has a true passion for education and choral development. He is much in demand as a voice teacher, and has been teaching singing at the Leinster School of Music & Drama since 2003, where he also lectures in Aural Skills and Choral Conducting for Griffith College's H Dip in Music.

Working as both a professional singer and singing teacher is central to Alan's significant contribution to the greater choral community in Ireland. He has worked as a vocal consultant for the Association of Irish Choirs on its annual Conductors Summer School. Since 2007, the AOIC have invited him to work as a tenor coach for the Irish Youth Choir, and recently as a vocal coach for the exciting new Irish Youth Chamber Choir. In 2012, Alan joined the teaching staff of the Ulster Youth Choir.

Alan has received many invitations to work with a varying range of choirs and ensembles nationwide through the combination of his singing, pedagogy and conducting skills. Mixing such skills is what sets Alan apart. uses cookies to analyse traffic through the site and help us improve user experience. By continuing to use this site you agree to the use of cookies.
