Linda Corcoran

Director

Our Director since 2000 is Linda Corcoran. She has a wealth of experience, boundless energy and a genuine passion for close harmony.

Linda's early musical background lies in piano and the world of Lancashire Brass Bands playing Flugel Horn.

Discovering the sound of Barbershop harmony when she was just 15 was life-changing and has led to Linda winning many national and international awards in quartet and chorus.

Linda has led The GWC to the last four of its 10 British Championships, and three appearances in the World Championships in the USA, most recently in Orlando 2018.

Linda works full time as a vocal coach and choir leader running 'Go Vocal', a community rock and pop choir based in Bristol and Cheltenham, bringing fun and harmony to everyday lives.

She is in great demand as an arranger and coach in the UK and abroad and is on the teaching faculty of both BABS and LABBS Harmony College.

Linda is a member of the Music Services team for IABS (Irish Association of Barbershop Singers) and since 2015 has been the Director of ‘Harmony Federation’, Ireland’s National Men’s Barbershop Chorus.

Linda’s ethos is that learning, rehearsing and performing music should always include a large dose of fun!
