Colin Knoth, a native of Springfield, Missouri,  is a second-year DMA student in conducting at The Ohio State University, studying with Dr. Robert Bode and Dr. Robert Ward. He holds a bachelor's degree in Music Education from Evangel University and a master’s degree in choral conducting from the University of Missouri, where he studied with Dr. R. Paul Crabb. While at Mizzou, he was nominated and inducted into the Pi Kappa Lambda music fraternity by the music faculty. Colin began playing piano at age five, but found his true passion for music in the art of choral singing. He believes firmly in choral music’s ability to unite people of all backgrounds and beliefs in creating something that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Colin has worked with singers of all ages and abilities. He has taught at the middle and high school levels, and was active as an accompanist and community and church choir conductor in Missouri for six years before coming to Ohio State. He worked extensively with the Choral Arts Alliance of Missouri’s various ensembles, including the Columbia Chorale, Columbia Chamber Choir, and Columbia Youth Choirs. He also served as the assistant conductor for the Missouri Symphony Society’s youth choral program for one year. Professionally, Colin sings with the Tallgrass Chamber Choir and Vox Nova ensembles. At Ohio State, he serves as the graduate teaching assistant for the Ohio State Chorale, Men’s Glee Club, and Choral Sight Reading courses.
