VIRGINIA KERR is one of the most distinguished Irish sopranos of her generation, equally well known on the operatic stage, concert and oratorio platform and as a recitalist. Her operatic and concert performances have taken her as far afield as the Far East, Russia and North and South America.
In addition to her busy singing career, Virginia is a member of the vocal faculty of the Royal Irish Academy of Music and of Maynooth University and takes a holistic approach to her teaching of singing, incorporating her training in psychology and body work into her vocal tuition.
Virginia has always been interested in the psyche of the musician and the dichotomy of how one person can find performing easy and enjoyable, while another can be terrified by the prospect of going onstage. It started out as a journey of self-exploration and a keen interest in the minds of musicians. It developed as her studies progressed further.
