“For me, a visit to the local library is like coming home. The smell and feel of books, with all the stories and happiness they offer- it’s an adventure and a reassurance. I know they’re always there, waiting for me!”- Liz Nolan
Liz Nolan hails fromDublin, and had her first taste of music at the age of 6, when she entered the local singing feis. It was scary at first! But Liz enjoyed it so much she went on to train in voice, oboe and piano at the DIT Conservatory of Music and Royal Irish Academy of Music. Lots of practice. But it paid off, because then…
… Liz became a lecturer at the DIT Conservatory of Music. She moved to Cork as Education & Outreach Officer at the Association of Irish Choirs, and just when things seemed nice and quiet…
… out of the blue, RTÉ lyric fm beckoned, and Liz began by deputising on shows and contributing feature programmes. She went on to present The Lyric Pitch, Daybreak and now Liz Nolan’s Lunchtime Classics (12-2pm, Monday- Friday, 96-99 RTÉ lyric fm).
