She also loves to work with choirs, often creating the flute obbligato part, with the KW Philharmonic Children's Choir, the Milton Choristers, the Women of Note and the Basilica of Our Lady (Guelph) Choir. Since 2009, pianist Larisa Gulenco and she have performed recitals in the Halton/Hamilton/Guelph area. An interest in traditional Irish flute playing has lead her to enroll in classes at Guelph’s Riverside Celtic College.
A native of Sault Ste Marie, daughter of Lola and the late Erasmo Spinazze, Rosanne graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Music and a Bachelor of Education, and earned an ARCT in flute performance. Her teachers have included Doug Stewart, Susan Hoeppner and Peter Lloyd, and has participated in masterclasses with Robert Aitken, Robert Langevin, Julius Baker and Sir James Galway.
