Robin Fay Massie

Robin Fay Massie is a professional violist in the Baltimore/D.C. area. Ms. Massie has cultivated a multi-faceted career as an orchestral violist, chamber musician, soloist, recording artist and private instructor. She has performed with The Philadelphia Orchestra and National Symphony Orchestra among other major ensembles. She is Assistant Principal Viola with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra and Co-Principal Viola with the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra (Philadelphia). She has appeared on episodes of VH1’s Storytellers show featuring neo-soul artist Jill Scott and BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel show featuring gospel artist Tye Tribbett. Following a recent performance, Philadelphia journalist Michael Caruso writes: “Especially noteworthy was the strength of Massie’s playing … Massie’s strongly projected and beautifully modulated brawny tone made certain that her voice would be heard …” [, 2012].

With a heart for service, Ms. Massie is Founder and Executive Director of Musicians of Mercy (MOM) – a collective of over seventy musicians and artists in the Metropolitan D.C. area. MOM raises funds for humanitarian causes through the production of benefit concerts.
