Carine Maree Tinney was born in Scotland in 1989. The soprano studied with Andrew Doig and Paul Keohone at Edinburgh Napier University, where she was awarded the »Harold Gray Prize for Solo Singing«.

Through master classes with Emma Kirkby, Ingeborg Danz, Bo Skovus, Sybilla Rubens, and Thomas Quasthoff she received further valuable artistic input.

Carine Tinney already performed a range of oratorios and song recitals in Scotland, Japan, Canada, and Germany and could, among other things, be heard singing live the Joyce-Lieder by Karol Szymanowski on DeutschlandRadio Kultur in 2012. In 2014 she sang the soprano parts of the St. John Passion and the Christmas Oratorio by Johann Sebastian Bach under the baton of Helmuth Rilling with Chorakademie Lübeck. In June 2014 she took on the role of Pamina in Mozart’s Magic Flute at Landestheater Detmold for the very first time. She belongs to the awardees of international singing contest ‘Wettbewerb für Liedkunst’ at the Hugo-Wolf-Akademie (2014) in Stuttgart as well as the Alumni/AStA contest in ‘Liedgestaltung’ at Hochschule für Musik Detmold. Last year she could be heard in a performance of ‘Ein deutsches Requiem’ by Johannes Brahms in Edinburgh, in War Requiem by Benjamin Britten, and as Cendrillon in the opera of the same name by Jules Massenet at Hochschule für Musik Detmold.
