“Precision, musical intelligence and passion” are words that have been used to described guitarist Colin Davin. He has been hailed as “the real thing; a player with a virtuoso’s technique, a deeply expressive musicianship, and a probing imagination” (American Record Guide).
For the past seven years Colin has served on the conservatory faculty of the Cleveland Institute of Music as Co-Head of the Guitar Department alongside Jason Vieaux. He holds a Master of Music from The Juilliard School, where he studied with Sharon Isbin; a Bachelor of Music from the University of Southern California with William Kanengiser (of the LA Guitar Quartet), and underwent preparatory studies at the Cleveland Institute of Music with Jason Vieaux. He has recently joined the faculty of Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, Virginia, as Director of Guitar Studio and Associate Professor of Guitar.
Colin performs regularly as a soloist and as a guest artist with orchestras around the world. He collaborates with GRAMMY Award winning soprano Estele Gomez and Dallas Symphony Orchestra principal harpist Emily Levin. He is recently back from performing in Australia and in October will play the guitar part in Mahler’s 7th Symphony with the Cleveland Orchestra in Cleveland, Vienna, and Israel.
