Adrian Rodriguez is a Venezuelan-Canadian operatic singer/songwriter. He combines his classically trained tenor voice with a rich background of musical influences. He seeks with his project “Don Adriano” to reinvent the classical crossover genre.
A few decades ago the classically trained singer was seen performing on Montreal bars with his Latin/fusion band called “Zorte”. At the same time he was attending college in music. A voice teacher saw some heard some talent and told him he could sing opera.
He went home and started listen to Pavarotti and immediately felt in love with it… Many years since, remembering how fun was to write music and knowing how touching it can be to sing lyrically he thought of “Don Adriano”. He wants to let his creativity fly across genres and without reserve.
Don Adriano performs also as a tenor in different operas and recitals.
