Sing Ireland Chairperson, Virginia Kerr

A constant on the international stage, Virginia Kerr’s career includes celebrated performances on the stages of the world’s leading opera houses and concert halls and has taken her as far afield as Russia, Asia, Mexico and North and South America.

Alongside a busy international performing career, Virginia Kerr is Professor of Voice at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and is on the vocal faculty of the National University of Ireland Maynooth. A keen interest in the workings of the psyche of musicians and performers led Virginia to pursue a Master of Science degree in psychotherapy with an emphasis on Musical Performance Anxiety. Virginia specialises in working with performers who suffer with performance anxiety and she incorporates this work into her performance psychology lecture series at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in addition to working privately at her private psychotherapy practice in Dublin.
