Bio


Miguel Rosales began his musical studies as a violinist under the tutorship of Fiona Giambra, Romeo Giacomotto, and Mario Bisazza, and formed part of the Malta Youth Orchestra (2005-2006, 2014-2015), the Euro Academy Youth Orchestra (2002-2008), and the Junior College Orchestra (2006-2013). He studied music theory with Kevin Bonello and Manoel Pirotta. Miguel still occasionally performs as a freelance violinist with a number of ensembles and chamber orchestras.

Miguel eventually began his vocal studies in 2011 and has studied under the tutorship of Andriana Yordanova, Claire Massa, and Juliette Bisazza Zanni. He has also attended workshops and master classes with Miriam Cauchi, Miriam Gauci, Verena Rein, Thomas E. Bauer, and Uta Hielscher. Miguel holds a B.A. (Hons) in Music Studies from the University of Malta. Miguel has sung under the baton of many respectable conductors including Michael Laus, Damiano Binetti, Philip Walsh, and Andreas Spering, amongst others. He has also performed as a soloist in the Lunchtime Concert Series of St James Cavalier, St Paul's Anglican Pro-Cathedral, and St John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta, as well as in the Young Artists Series organized by the Teatru Salesjani and in the Kulturwald Festival in Blaibach, Bavaria (Germany).

Miguel formed part of the Teatru Manoel Youth Opera between 2014 and 2016. He first performed as Guglielmo in a concert version of Mozart’s Così fan tutte under the direction of Dr Hans-Jürgen Nagel, and has also made his on-stage operatic debut as Benoît and Alcindoro in the Teatru Astra's 2015 production of Puccini's La bohème. He has also studied and performed a number of song cycles such as the Songs of Travel (Vaughan Williams), Opus 49 (Brahms), Trois mélodies 1916 (Satie) and Don Quichotte à Dulcinée (Ravel), as well as excerpts from cycles such as Myrthen (Schumann), Winterreise (Schubert), Six Songs from A Shropshire Lad (Butterworth), and The House of Life (Vaughan Williams).
