Colin Old

Born in Portsmouth, Colin has lived locally for all of his life apart from Studying Bachelor and Masters degrees at London and Southampton Universities and completing a Post-Graduate year at a secondary school in Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex. He has taught in Southampton and Chichester.

Having taught for 35 years, he is now enjoying semi-retirement, giving him more time to practise radio-presenting techniques!

He has been a keen singer and musician all his life, studying Music at ‘A’ level and composing choral pieces for a number of churches, including Chichester and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedrals, as well as for a university-based choir in Louisiana, USA. He continues to enjoy choral singing, being a member of 4 choirs. When not singing, Colin enjoys travelling, especially visiting friends in Eastern Europe or catching up with gardening.

He hopes that his passionate enthusiasm for Classical Music will compensate for his lack of technical skills but he is always willing to learn!

He presents an exciting new show on Outreach Radio, introducing listeners to a whole gamut of Classical repertoire, both familiar and unfamiliar! He says, ‘I am keen to take my listener on a journey that will change their perceptions forever.’
