She studied piano with Anne Pizzale and later, at an advanced level, with Soeur Anita Vaugeois (Sister Cecile of Les Soeurs De L’Assomption in Timmins). Her vocal and accompaniment skills were nurtured by her aunt, the late Dorothea Mascioli. When Rosanne graduated from O’Gorman High School, she moved on to the University of Toronto where she continued her piano and vocal studies while attaining a Bachelor of Arts Degree. She was hired as a piano accompanist for several musical companies, most notably, the National Ballet Of Canada. She presently holds an A.R.C.T. Teacher’s Diploma in Voice from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. Rosanne has studied choral conducting with numerous well known Canadian Conductors, including Wayne Riddell of Montreal, Quebec and the internationally renowned Dr. Elmer Iseler. She has been a founding member of numerous community-based arts organizations: the Timmins Arts Council, later known as Arts & Culture Timmins, the Timmins Symphony Orchestra, and, the Timmins Youth Singers…as well as the TYS Alumnus choir, the Timmins Concert Singers. In 1987, she was also selected to be the conductor of the Timmins Board Of Education Choir, comprised of talented students from Grades 5 to 8.

  1. Yes, Rosanne – I have felt they know a little something ahead of time. I do like the judges interactions with each other. I do enjoy The Voice, but American Idol will always be #1 with me! I am so excited to find out who the new judges will be.


  2. no, i don’t think there is any forewarned knowledge given to the judges. that isn’t how mark burnett works. this is a tv show. idol had a recording studio behind it.


  3. not looking forward to the two ‘old’ judges being back. yeck. i found interesting this statement: “Josh Logan – Josh was a contestant on Rockstar: Supernova in 2006. Here he is covering “She Talks to Angels.” Yeah. That was a Mark Burnett production too. He’s got a soulful Hot AC thing going on. Check out his website.”

    i was a giant fan of mark burnett’s rock shows and loved many of the performers. i googled josh and watched him sing a number of songs. interesting because i can’t remember him at all and there are so many that *are* memorable to me.

    but then, i was not into john paul stevens AT ALL on idol, and yet i was totally hooked with he and his singing partner as ‘midas whale’.


  4. I finally got done watching Season 4 of The Voice. What an incredible season! Definately the best one I’ve seen yet. I thought every one of the Top 6 was stellar. Congrats to Danielle! I LOVE, LOVE this girl’s voice!! I believe she’ll be just as great a singer as Carrie Underwood, perhaps even better, considering she’s only 16. I really want her to be Danielle, and not the next Carrie like so many keep saying. Everyone’s anticipating that she’s going to be a huge Country Star, and I totally believe she will be. I think it’s so refreshing that they had a contestant with so little experience performing for others, unlike so many others do. She grew and grew each and every week into a beautiful star! It was just remarkable to see! She’s a very special girl!! I’m sure a big Michelle Chamuel fan also. I really was inpressed with the Swon Brothers, but it was so exciting that Michelle beat them into the Top 2, and rightfully so. Her performance of Annie Lenox’ “Why” made me just break down and cry. She poured her heart into it so much, that it blew me away! I really didn’t mind which one of the girl’s won that night. Although I definately feel Michelle is more artistic. I’ve bought many of their studio recordings on ITunes. They both deserved the title so very much!!!
