Born in Bombay, PATRICIA ROZARIO studied at London's Guildhall School of Music, winning the Gold Medal and the Maggie Teyte Prize. Since then, her career has developed in opera, concert work, recording and broadcasting. 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 and given concerts in major venues all over the world. Her wide concert and opera repertoire ranges from baroque to contemporary music. She has given the premier performances of many pieces written especially for her, most recently John Casken's Farness and Chansons de Verlaine at the Wigmore Hall, and Jonathan Dove's setting of Vikram Seth, Minterne, with Steven Isserlis and Philippe Honoré. She has so far appeared eight times at the BBC Proms. 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.
