An Arbroath vocalist has joined the ranks of Scotland’s newest classical boy band.
Ross McInroy has been chosen by Classical Musicians Scotland to sing bass in Scozzesi, Scotland’s new all-male classical vocal group.
Scozzesi, Italian for ‘Scottish men’, will officially launch with their first concert at the Winter Gardens, Glasgow Green, on Thursday, September 25.
Their calling card will be a mixed repertoire of opera, operetta, songs from the shows, Scottish traditional songs in four part arrangements, with a lot of humour thrown in.
Ross has an impressive musical career to date. He is a graduate of the Royal College of Music International Opera School and the Royal Academy of Music, where he was awarded the Dorothy Pattinson Prize and Adah Rogalsky Scholarship.
He began his studies at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama where he gained his BMusHons and was awarded the Governor’s Recital Prize, Linn Choir Prize for Scots song and Mary D Quant Scholarship.
As a choral scholar at Paisley Abbey he sang as principal bass.
