Margarita de Arellano
" … at first glance, some people may say that I am superficial; but in reality, my dynamic soul is
sometimes too much for my small framed body. I am dynamic and full of life: I quess it has to do with
being an artist! I am an American with Latina roots and believe me; judging from my hair, I do have
that Spanish, Indigenious and maybe African background that means Latina!

After my formal studies at the University of Miami and The Juilliard School in New York graduating
with a Master's Degree in Music, I followed through with some contacts I had met along the way and
pursued my goal to move over to Europe.
One of those contacts was musician Diego Monjo from Spain who introduced me to a festival in the
Island of Menorca at the Baroque styled Teatre Principal de Maó where I sang Gilda in Rigoletto
opposite Baritone Leo Nucci and Bass/Baritone Juan Pons."
