In Memoriam Paul Deegan

Mar 22, 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we regretfully inform you that our dear friend Paul Deegan succumbed to the coronavirus last night in Dublin.


Paul was one of the founding members of EVTA, back in 1989. Those of you who attended the Council meeting in Wroclaw will remember his smile and wit, and all of you who have come to various EVTA events over the years know that we always counted on Paul to bring up obscure points of law in the Constitution as well as make us laugh hysterically with his anecdotes of teaching recalcitrant singers!


We hope the angels will listen to his good advice, to keep working on their diction and let the air flow through their wings…


We will miss you, Paul.


Susan Yarnall-Monks, president and the EVTA board members
