Marcelly Rosa was born in São Paulo, Brazil, but at a very young age moved to Tatuí “the music city”. Her interest to study music started at the age of seven, mostly influenced by her father, an amateur guitarist who encouraged her to pursue her natural talent while teaching her how to play her first notes. At the age of nine she began to study classical guitar with Adriano Paes and at the Conservatório Dr. Carlos de Campos de Tatuí, a reputable music program and leading conservatory in Latin America, she studied with renowned professors and guitarists such as Angela Muner and Edson Lopes.
Rosa has been very active throughout her youth and is often invited to participate in chamber ensembles, and to perform concerts throughout Brazil and abroad. In 2008, she toured in Germany performing the repertoire of various Brazilian composers with the Violões e Cia, an organization under Márcia Braga supported by the conservatory. A highlight moment of her career was performing in a duo with guitarist Paulo Rochel. This professional engagement allowed Rosa to work on an exclusive repertoire written for a classical guitar duo allowing new collaborations and to further study a master class with renowned Brazilian guitarist Sérgio Assad. From that period, she has won various artistic prizes, among them the Souza Lima Guitar Contest in 2009, and the very prestigious Pré-Estreia hosted by TV Cultura in 2011, performing the final concert at Sala São Paulo, where she was raved by musical reviewers.
Most recently, Rosa has been performing with the chamber ensemble Camerata de Violões of Conservatório de Tatuí. This ensemble has recorded two albums and has high visible in the guitar music scenario of Brazil. Furthermore, Rosa has been very engaged and attending master class by world-renowned guitarists Pavel Steidl, Jorge Caballero and Ana Vidovic. Rosa is a member of the guitar ensemble Quarteto Abayomi, which has recorded an album Delicado (Delicate) dedicated to various Brazilian composers.
