Who are the winners of Women to Listen to III?
Women to Listen to III, the lyrical singing contest aimed at highlighting the work of Chilean interpreters, selected its three winners for 2019. This year, the competition received a remarkably high number of artists from outside the Metropolitan Region.
Alyson Rosales. FIRST PLACE AND BEST INTERPRETATION
She started her vocal education in 2010 at the Universidad de Chile. In 2012, she chose to continue studying privately under Professor Ahlke Scheffelt. She has attended HMDK Stuttgart since 2016, studying under Professor Turid Karlsen.
Thanks to her talent and discipline, Alyson received a scholarship from the “Corporation of Friends of the Municipal Theater”, the “Ibáñez Atkinson Foundation”, and German foundations “Rotary Stiftung Stuttgart” and “Richard Wagner Verband International”.
Before winning “Women to Listen to III”, Alyson had garnered some major awards, such as the audience’s prize in the 15th Dr. Luis Sigall International Competition, where she was the best-ranked Chilean participant. She had also received the special prize in the lyrical singing category in the “26th Gianluca Campochiaro International Contest” (2017), held at the Massimo Bellini Theater (Catania, Italy). She had also won fourth place and two special prizes in the Competizione dell’opera 2019 in Sotchi, Russia; fifth place in the “Neapolitan Masters Competition”, held at the Bellini Theater (Naples, Italy), the audience’s prize in the “Nuits Lyriques de Marmande 2018″ (France), and the “Gold Medal” in the “4th Manhattan International Music Competition” (USA).

Tabita Martínez. SECOND PLACE
In 2011, after a brief period in a teacher education program, Tabita Martínez dared to follow her dreams and applied for a place at Universidad de Chile’s Lyrical Singing School. Eager to boost her learning process and conquer the stage, she completed her university education under Professor Rodrigo Navarro.
In 2017, she received a scholarship from the “Corporation of Friends of the Municipal Theater” to perfect her skills for one year at the Conservatory of the Liceu in Barcelona.
Her main achievements include her first place in the “Laguna Mágica” lyrical festival, held since 2012 in San Pedro de la Paz, Concepción.
Her singing career has developed simultaneously in Chile and Spain. Nowadays, she is regarded as one of the most promising up-and-coming talents in Chilean lyrical singing.
Pamela Castro. THIRD PLACE
Women to Listen to III marked soprano Pamela Castro’s lyrical debut. Singing has always been a part of her life –first, as a member of her church and school choirs; some years later, she would join a metal band.
Pamela completed two higher education programs at the same time: Business at Universidad Alberto Hurtado and Higher Level Interpretation with a Specialization in Lyrical Singing under the guidance of Professor Paola Sánchez at the same university.
She expects to further her career abroad, specifically in Belgium, at the Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth, where she hopes to enroll in a vocal performance development course under Belgian baritone José Van Dam and French mezzosoprano Sophie Koch.
