REWARD FOR A LIFE ON STAGE
In a year that one of Northern Ireland’s most loved performers is celebrating 30 years in showbiz, Peter has now received the veritable icing on the cake having been awarded the prestigious title of Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for his services to Music & the Arts in Northern Ireland.
This announcement has come as a wonderful surprise and a great honour.
A DIVERSE CAREER
PERFORMING, PRODUCING, DIRECTING & Mentoring
“I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me throughout my career and to those who have nominated me for this prestigious award. This recognition is not only a personal milestone but also a testament to the power of music and its ability to bring joy, inspiration, and unity to people’s lives.”
The MBE represents a crowning achievement in Peter Corry’s remarkable career, adding yet another accolade to his extensive list of accomplishments, since winning a BBC/RTE talent contest, Peter has appeared on stages across the world including an impressive three-year stint on the West End as Inspector Javert in Cameron Macintosh’s Les Miserables, he also produced what was at the time the largest ever Les Mis concert at what was then the Odyssey arena with a cast of no less than 1000.
PETER’S WORK WITH BSPA
HELPING FUTURE STARS
Peter also enjoys his role at the Belfast School of Performing Arts (BSPA), Northern Ireland’s most popular youth theatre company and says;
“Being Artistic Director for BSPA is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding roles I play, our ethos is not necessarily to see our students end up in a career on the stage, although that’s fantastic when it happens, but to help them grow in confidence and develop into young adults that can take on anything the world throws at them no matter what path they choose, being able to step up on stage and perform certainly helps to build resilience, something I believe everyone can benefit from.”
