Ronald Woan (Choral Conductor)

Born: 1919 - Walton, Liverpool, England

The English choral conductor, Ronald Woan, was educated at the Liverpool Institute. As a boy he sang in Liverpool Cathedral Choir from the age of 11.

At the same time, he began weekday work as a music teacher in Crosby schools until his retirement in 1982.
