In Memory: Peter Collins


The COC is greatly saddened by the news of the passing of Peter Collins, COC Ensemble Studio member from 2001-2004, who is remembered as a great friend and colleague with a beautiful tenor voice. We look back at some of the productions he was involved with, and wish his family and friends comfort in their time of grief.
