“Patricia Rozario floats effortlessly with a voice of liquid gold” —Gramophone
Born in Bombay, Patricia Rozario studied at London’s Guildhall School of Music, winning the Gold Medal, and then at the National Opera Studio. Her unique voice and artistry has inspired several of the world’s leading composers to write for her, most notably Arvo Pärt and Sir John Tavener, the latter having now written over thirty works for her, making their collaboration unique in the contemporary field. She has sung with Solti, Ashkenazy, Jurowski, Belohlavek, Gardiner, Pinnock and Andrew Davis, sung opera at Aix-en-Provence, Amsterdam, Lyon, Lille, Bremen, Antwerp, Wexford, ENO, Glyndebourne and Opera North, and given concerts in North America, Canada, Russia, the Far East, Australia, throughout Europe, and at all the major UK venues.
Recently she performed with the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall with Vladimir Jurowski, at Bath International Festival, Wigmore Hall and did performances of ‘Faultline’ with the Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company across the UK, Sweden and India. Future performances include recordings and recitals in Germany, India (Con Brio Festival), Cyprus, Snape Maltings & Australia.
Patricia Rozario was awarded the OBE in the New Year’s Honours, 2001 and the Asian Women’s Award for achievement in the Arts, 2002. Most recently, Patricia was honoured with the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Award in January 2013.
