Rose Mallare is an acoustic and electric cellist based in Tampa Bay, Florida.

Rose’s most favored accomplishment in music was touring Italy with the St. Jerome Chorale as a cellist completing the “Holy Year of Mercy” tour.  Together they played liturgical, contemporary and classical selections under the musical direction of Tom Kurt.  His holiness, Pope Francis, presided at these masses at St. Peter’s Basilica and St. Peter’s Piazza in Vatican City.

On the final day of the tour, Rose was informed by an official of Peter’s Way Tours, that she had become the first electric cellist to play inside of St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City.  This is an honor she never believed she would ever have and is still elated from the experience!

To learn more about the Italian Pilgrimage and the music ministry of St. Jerome’s Church, follow them on Facebook for information on the tour and upcoming performances.
