April 21, 2012

Dordt College senior Rachel Van Essen of Mitchell, Ontario, will present a mezzo-soprano vocal recital in the B.J. Haan Auditorium on Thursday, May 3, at 4 p.m.

“I’m really excited to perform a set by Bernstein from his Mass as it is an exploration of the journey of faith,” said Van Essen.

Other recital participants include piano accompanist Nancy Vermeer, soprano vocalist Sierra Tiegs (Caldwell, Idaho), flautist Lael Radde (Cologne, Minnesota), and cellist Jinny Seo (Gwang-ju, South Korea). The public is welcome to attend the free recital and reception following.

Van Essen is a vocal performance and pedagogy major. This is her second solo recital at Dordt College.
