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 Arvo Pärt and Sir John Tavener, who alone has 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.
Highlights this season and beyond include performances with the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall with Vladimir Jurowski, recitals at Bath International Festival, Wigmore Hall and performances of ‘Faultline’ with the Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company across the UK, Sweden and India.
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.
