As a soloist in her own right, Marouska already has a wealth of experience, appearing in concerts at St John’s Co-Cathedral, Valletta; as Belinda in Dido and Aeneas; Dimitri in Fedora; in Johannes Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzer and Henze’s Moralities; in The Magic Flute as one of The Three Ladies and in the Britten operas, Noah’s Flood and Little Sweep. She is proud to have participated in concerts at the Manoel Theatre and St James Cavalier Centre for Creativity. Her latest solo recital was last June at Gharb Parish Church in Gozo. Together with the Cordia String Quartet she executed various pieces by Mozart, Bach, Handel, Caccini, Vivaldi, Bernstein and Portelli.

Feeding her passion for vocal musical knowledge, Marouska has attended an array of workshops with some of the legendary figures in the field. At the Lake District International Summer School of Music in Ambleside, UK she worked with Teresa Cahill and the late Robert Tear who was once so closely connected to the composer Benjamin Britten. Also in the UK she had classes with another musical giant, the opera diva Yvonne Kenny, at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. Add to the list Prof. Jerzy Artysz of Krakow Music Academy, an international baritone with a hugely successful career and who had studied violin before voice as Marouska herself did; Prof. Thomas E Bauer, a German baritone of growing importance; Daniel Lichti one of Canada’s acclaimed concert and oratorio singers and Deborah Harrison-Rossner from the United States. Marouska is currently tutored in voice technique by Juliette Bisazza Zanni.
