Victor Cardamone has garnered much attention and critical acclaim over the last few years, and he continues to do so. Slowly, but surely, he is making his way into a major career in opera. 


Victor graduated from Youngstown State University with his Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree, receiving a double major in applied voice and French horn. He took additional coursework at Ball State University, where he served as a graduate teaching assistant in the voice department, before officially transferring to the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music to earn his Master of Music in Vocal Performance degree. He is currently pursuing the Artist Diploma in Opera Studies at CCM.


Victor has bowed with Opera Western Reserve, the Warren Philharmonic, New Castle Lyric Opera, Asheville Lyric Opera, Brevard Music Center, Cincinnati Opera, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra (Charleston, South Carolina), Wolf Trap Opera, and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. He has portrayed both leading and supporting roles, performed in several scenes programs and for various community outreach events, and sung in his fair share of choruses. As an advocate and champion of new music, he has lent his voice to a number of significant débuted pieces. He was involved with Westminster College’s (New Wilmington, Pennsylvania) production of Katharina von Bora, which was one of only twenty-six operas premiered in 2015 worldwide. As a member of Opera Fusion: New Works, he was part of the first workshops/studio recordings of Eurydice (co-sponsored by The Metropolitan Opera and Los Angeles Opera) and Blind Injustice.


Victor was a finalist in the 2013 National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) Buckeye Chapter spring auditions. He was a winner of the 2013 Dana Young Artist (Concerto) Competition, where he sang Mozart’s “Misero! O sogno… Aura, che intorno spiri” (K. 431/425b) with the Dana Symphony Orchestra. As part of Manhattan Concert Production’s An Americana Thanksgiving on Black Friday 2015, he sang the national anthem on the Ronald O. Perelman Stage in the Isaac Stern Auditorium of New York City’s Carnegie Hall. As an alumni and guest artist with the Dana Chorale, he toured South Korea in May 2017. At CCM’s annual Corbett Competition, he was the recipient of the Russell-Seybold Award in 2018 and the Corbett Award in 2019. He is a two-time Central Region Finalist of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.


This upcoming summer, Victor will be returning to San Francisco Opera’s Merolini Apprentice Artist Program. When not singing, he can be found cuddling his favorite feline, a black cat named Bill.
