Colm Carey, Musician

Colm Carey enjoys a career as both concert organist and choral director, and is widely acknowledged as a characterful and inspiring performer.

As a concert organist his solo and concerto performances throughout Europe, as well as in Australia, Canada and the USA, have carved out his reputation as an original, exciting and distinctive musician. His performances – live and recorded – have been broadcast in many countries and he has recorded several critically acclaimed CDs, including his acclaimed interpretation of Bach’s The Art of Fugue. From 2004 - 2016 he held the post of Belfast City Organist where he performed regularly on the famous ‘Mulholland Grand Organ’.

In addition to his career as an organist, Colm Carey is Master of Music of the Chapels Royal, HM Tower of London. Under his direction the choir provides music for weekly services and special events in the two ancient Chapels Royal.  He has toured with the choir to South Africa, Italy and Ireland as well as releasing a CD of music inspired by the Psalms of David. In 2014 Colm formed his own group - The Odyssean Ensemble - to explore, through innovative projects and collaborations, the notion of music being a journey – a journey that challenges the listener and stimulates the mind, body and senses.
