Friday Music Series: Rehanna Thelwell, mezzo-soprano and William Woodard, piano

This program features two 2019-20 members of the Washington National Opera’s Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program, and a work by Georgetown University Music Program Prof. Carlos Simon. Mezzo-soprano Rehanna Thelwell has been applauded for her “superb and expressive power” by the South Florida Classical Review while her collaborations have been described as a “tour de force” by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Her voice has been commended as “one of beauty and distinction” with “rich vocal qualities” by Palm Beach Arts Paper and Arizona Daily Sun. New York based pianist/vocal coach William Woodard made his Carnegie Hall debut participating in Renée Fleming’s SongStudio.
