Baritone Colin Sproule is thrilled to join the New Albany Symphony onstage again. As the winner of the vocal division of NASO’s 2014 Student Concerto Competition, he performed with the orchestra in March of that year. At the age of nine, a performance by Maestro Luis Biava of Saint-Saens’ The Swan inspired Colin to take up the cello. Colin played with NASO for four seasons. Colin has been a volunteer for NASO since its founding. You can often find him at the concession stand or carrying heavy things for his mother.

Colin’s love of music and theatre led him to the New Albany Arts Council’s Junior Musical program at the age of 10. Since that time, Colin has appeared in 30 productions with New Albany High School, CATCO, CATCO is Kids, Columbus Civic Theatre, Opera Project Columbus and more. Some of his favorite roles include Fester in The Addams Family Musical and Geppetto in My Son Pinocchio.
