Colin runs Big Noise Chorus, a collection of Community Choirs in Devon singing, Pop and Musical Theatre. All sessions are being run online during the pandemic, but once restrictions are lifted we aim to get back to live singing again.

In Dec 2019, we celebrated our 10th Anniversary with 450 singers at Exeter Cathedral. This concert also pushed our fundraising total for charity to over £100,000.
