Born in Bragança Paulista, Brazilian pianist Ricardo Pozenatto began his musical studies at the age of fifteen with Helenice Villar Rosa. In São Paulo, he studied piano with Professor Rogerio Zaghi as well as with Professor Marisa Rosana Lacorte, graduating in 2009 with his Bachelor’s Degree in Music at Alcântara Machado University. During his studies, Mr.Pozenatto was very active in the musical scenario of Brazil, participating in important piano competitions. In 2008, he won the first prize at the XVII Souza Lima National Piano Competition in Brazil, and in 2010 received an honorable mention for the 16th “Arnaldo Estrella” National Piano Competition. Ricardo is also a passionate teacher and has actively contributed to project “Guri Santa Marcelina,” a Brazilian music education program specifically geared toward assisting children and teenagers. His expertise in music education also extends to adults. As a collaborative pianist, Mr.Pozenatto was the official accompanist for singers in a Jewish choir organization in Brazil. After deciding to enrich his musical studies abroad, Mr.Pozenatto was accepted with a full scholarship at the Lynn University Conservatory of Music (Boca Raton, FL), and in 2015, under the tutelage of Professor Lisa Leonard, he graduated in the Instrumental Collaborative Piano Master of Music degree. Two years later, he completed his second Master of Music degree in Piano Performance with a full graduate assistantship at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) from the studio of Dr. Irena Kofman. In 2017, as one of the winners of the FAU Aria & Concerto competition, he performed Grieg’s Piano Concerto with the FAU Symphony Orchestra. As an active music teacher, Mr.Pozenatto joins the FAU’s Teaching Outstanding Performers (TOPS) piano camp during the summer while getting prepared to begin his PhD in Piano Pedagogy program at Florida State University.

Jessica Menke is a vocalist of all styles. She was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, in a musical family. She attended Lavilla and Douglas Anderson School of the Arts and, in the summer of 2007, while still in high school, Jessica attended the Advanced Vocal Program at Interlochen Center for the Arts in Traverse City, Michigan. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Voice Performance from the University of North Florida. Jessica made her first oratorio appearance as the soprano soloist in the Benedictus Quartet from Mozart’s Requiem with the UNF Mozart Mentor’s Orchestra. In 2011, Jessica traveled without a group to Salzburg, Austria, and attended the Mozarteum’s International Summer Academy where Barbara Bonney was giving masterclasses. In 2012, Jessica performed as Despina in Mozart’s Così fan tutte with the North Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, taking part in UNF’s Summer Opera Program in the Czech Republic. She also participated in the Harrower Summer Workshop in Atlanta, Georgia, where she sang in the chorus of Georgia State University’s Tales of Hoffmann by Offenbach and performed in opera scenes. In the autumn of 2012, Jessica studied with baritone Gerald Finley’s teacher, Gary Coward, at the English National Opera while studying at Florida State University’s London Study Centre before completing her degree at UNF. Following graduation in 2014, Jessica traveled with her teacher, Marilyn Mims, to Paris to attend the Paris International Summer Sessions École Normale. Jessica’s move to Ann Arbor, Michigan, at the end of 2014, gave her the opportunity to study voice with Metropolitan Opera singer, Stanford Olsen. While in Michigan, Jessica sang the role of The Diva (as a young artist) in Pittsfield Opera Theatre’s La Divina. She was also a guest singer at the Zal Gaz Grotto Club with both the Paul Klinger and the Paul Keller Jazz Orchestras. Additionally, Jessica has regularly performed in church. Before relocating to Tallahassee, Ms. Menke resided in Jacksonville, where she and her mother, Carolyn Menke, established a private music studio. Currently, Jessica is studying Music Education at Florida State University and plans to complete a second bachelor’s degree in the Fall of 2019.
