Rosario set to sing at St Mary's Church
PATRICIA ROSARIO has appeared at the Proms eight times, and on January 26 at 8 p. m. in St Mary's Church she will be singing in New Ross.
It's an opportunity not to be missed. Music for New Ross, who are promoting this concert have deliberately kept the ticket price lower than normal at € 12 to attract people who might not have been to one of their concerts before.
She will be accompanied on the piano by Michael McHale, who performed at the New Ross Piano Festival in 2006, and is now making a name for himself in the UK and Europe.
Born in Bombay, Patricia Rozario studied at London's Guildhall School of Music, winning the Gold Medal.
Her unique voice and artistry has inspired several of the world's leading composers to write for her, most notably ArvoPärt and Sir John Tavener, who alone has now written over thirty works for her, making their collaboration unique in the contemporary field.
She was awarded the OBE in the New Year's Honours, 2001 and the Asian Women's Award for Achievement in the Arts, 2002.
