  • Bio:

    Roseanna Vitro was born into a family of southern gospel singers in Arkansas and blessed with an Italian father who loved opera and the "Rat Pack". I've been singing since I was four years old in every possible capacity and style. Lucky to be nurtured and adopted into the jazz community in Houston, Texas in 1973 by Ray Sullenger and I never looked back. I love good singers. In 1998 Ed Joffe, music chair at NJCU in Jersey City asked me to design a vocal jazz program and my teaching career began. Twelve albums later and tours around the world, I am delighted to discover and be a part of Jeannie LoVetri's legion of followers and fans after completing Level I & II at Shenandoah this week.
