Mexican tenor and composer Juanra Urrusti studied composition and opera singing at the Centro de Investigación y Estudios de la Música (CIEM) in Mexico City with soprano Rosa María Díez and baritones Josué Cerón and Ramón Calzadilla. He has taken part in numerous master classes at home and abroad and in 2017, with the help of his singing teacher and mentor, the Mexican tenor Armando Mora, switched from baritone to tenor.
His repertoire includes a wide range of styles, from songs and operas to bolero and rock. He has recorded several albums and participated in film and television productions as a composer and performer. In March 2015 he took part in the production of Gaetano Donizetti’s Conservatorio Nacional de Música “L’elisir d’amour” and was a finalist of the II Concurso Iberoamericano de Canto “Irma González” at the Palacio de Bellas Artes.
Juanra lives and works in Mexico City. In June 2017 he was the soloist in Enrico Chapela’s mini rock opera Metamórfica, which was premiered by the Dresden Symphony Orchestra at the Plaza Monumento a la Revolución in Mexico City.
