Lunch Break Live! With Yuri Rodríguez Presented By Lake City Bank

Jul 24

Costa Rican soprano, artist and educator Yuriria Rodríguez holds the rare privilege of being able to sing in both classical and popular styles with great professionalism, expression, and accuracy of style. Reviews have praised Ms. Rodríguez as a singer “with a beautiful voice which recalls a force of nature” (Herald Times, Bloomington, IN), and as “The real deal” (Fanfare , November 2011, USA). In 2006, she sang the role of Maria in the tango-operita by A. Piazzolla and H.Ferrer, Maria de Buenos Aires, at the Buskirk- Chumley Theater, receiving a standing ovation in a sold out performance. In the classical realm, Ms. Rodríguez also successfully performed known roles such as

Most recently, Yuri sang the role of Sombra, in the world premiere and +20 performances of Gabriela Ortiz’s Ana y su Sombra, commissioned by Reimagining Opera for Kids, a local Opera Company that Yuriria is proudly part of, and that performs all year round. In 2016, Yuri was called to be the cover for the role of Mimi in Costa Rica’s National Lyric Opera Production of La Bohème.

Currently, Yuri works as Associate Director of Hispanic Music at Christ Church Cathedral in Indianapolis, where she conducts the Coro Latinoamericano and develops a bilingual choral program for early music learners. Occasionally, she can be heard singing as a guest soloist for the Choir of Adult and Choristers of Christ Church. She is a guest artist for the Indiana University Latin Jazz Ensemble.
