As one of Ireland’s leading mezzo-sopranos, Victoria Massey commands an eclectic vocal repertoire spanning the genres of opera, oratorio, art song, and musical theatre. The Dublin-born singer has enchanted audiences of the finest opera houses in Europe with her engaging interpretation of roles from the manuscripts of Steffani, Mozart, Busoni, Gounod, Richard Strauss, Britten, Wagner and Balfe. A former student of the Hochschule Mozarteum in Salzburg and a first-class honours graduate of the Masters in Performance Programme at DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama, Massey’s vocal talents have garnered recognition from prestigious musical bodies such as Ireland’s Feis Ceoil, Italy’s C.A Seghizzi International Choral Singing Competition, and the Lombard and Ulster Bursary Award. Her voice can be heard on a number of RTÉ lyric fm recordings.
Pádhraic Ó Cuinneagáin received his early music education at the Royal Irish Academy of Music (RIAM) and the Schola Cantorum, St. Finian’s College, Mullingar. He later completed undergraduate studies at UCD and postgraduate studies at NUI Maynooth. He is currently a lecturer of piano and academic studies at DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama, where he has roles as programme co-ordinator for the BMus, BMusEd and MMus (Performance) programmes.  He has performed across Ireland and abroad as soloist, in partnership with prominent singers and instrumentalists, and as accompanist and in chamber music.
