Soprano Deirdre Moynihan performs with many operatic, orchestral, choral and chamber music groups both in Ireland and on the international stage (Japan, USA, China, Israel, Canada, Brazil, Lebanon and throughout Europe). Specialising in Renaissance and baroque music, she regularly performs as an oratorio soloist and has received much acclaim for her recitals of rarely performed treasures of the baroque repertoire. She has worked with conductors such as Christophe Rousset, Matthew Halls and Jeffery Skidmore and has been a soloist with, amongst others, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, Irish Baroque Orchestra, Resurgam, Irish Chamber Orchestra and the National Chamber Choir of Ireland. She also embraces the challenge of contemporary compositions and is regularly invited to perform premières of new works. She trained with Robert Beare at the Cork School of Music, from where she holds an MA in Vocal Performance, and later studied with Janice Chapman in London. She gratefully acknowledges support received from the Arts Council of Ireland.
