Patricia Rozario –A music legend in the making

Receiving the award of the ‘Order of the British Empire’ in 2001 by the British Monarchy, Patricia Rozario has made her way to Goa to inspire us Indians and ‘Give us a Voice.’

The Bombay-born British soprano

Born and educated in Bombay, she migrated to London and studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Her most prized performances in England include the English National Opera, Opera North, Glyndebourne Festival Opera, and the Garsington Opera. However, she is not restricted to Britain, she has also performed on stage across Europe in Aix-en-Provence, Brussels, Frankfurt, Ghent, Innsbruck, Lyon and Stuttgart.

Patricia is currently a professor at the Royal College of Music, where she is a member of the Vocal Faculty. While Performing in Europe, America and Asia she has made numerous recordings of the works of composer John Tavener.


Giving Voice to India (GVI)

Goa Chitra Museum in Benaulim is currently hosting GVI an international quality vocal tuition in western form and coaching for 5 days which started on the 26 July. Patricia and pianist Mark Troop are conducting these classes. Their aim is to raise the standard of the western art form in the country and create a platform for aspiring vocalists to shine.

Training includes:

  • Purity of tone
  • Voice with resonance
  • Breath control
  • Longevity and excellent projection
  • Proper pronunciation of languages including German, French and English
  • Depth stylistic training

Promising enjoyment and development in quality of voice, candidates are being given the golden opportunity to appear in concerts associated with the course. Giving Voice to India has been successful for three consecutive years and I’m sure Patricia and Mark are looking forward to turning it into four years of grand success. I am eagerly waiting to see aspirants show off their talent on stage in the near future.
