Since his debut at the age of eighteen, Colin Andrews has been recognized as a musician of great versatility, power and artistry. Born in Bristol, England, Andrews initally studied with Garth Benson of St. Mary Redcliffe Church, Bristol. At sixteen, he entered London’s Royal Academy of Music for four years of organ and piano study under principal Professors, Douglas Hawkridge & Margaret McDonald. He later moved to Geneva, Switzerland, where he was a student of Professor Lionel Rogg at the Conservatoire de Musique. Following his return to Britain, he studied privately for two years with Dame Gillian Weir.

Colin Andrews has been the recipient of many awards, most notably, he was a prizewinner at both the 1980 and 1982 Dublin International Organ Competitions in Ireland, and, in 1993, The Royal Academy of Music, London, bestowed an Associateship upon him in recognition of his distinguished performing career.
