Rachel got rave reviews for her performances with Opera Parallèle last month. The San Francisco Chronicle said: "Out of a superb ensemble cast, perhaps the finest singing was delivered by soprano Rachel Schutz. She brought lyricism and cogency to the Weill songs and a vivacious spirit to the role of Thérèse." Check out the press page for more, and the gallery to see some fantastic production photos!
I'm happy to announce the release of the first commercial CD on which I'm featured! It is a CD of contemporary American music written for the Chinese Pipa, played by the amazing Yang Jing. I am lucky enough to have recorded a work entitled "Rumi Songs" which was written especially for me and Jing by composer and friend Thomas Osborne. It is a great piece, so check out the CD (called "Elements" and released on Albany Records) if you get a chance. It will be available starting December 1st at all fine online retailers (I think!).
