Helton and Withers Combine Talent for Concert

Posted by Jeffrey Cowart

Rachel Helton, mezzo-soprano, and Lisa Withers, piano, music faculty members at Emory & Henry, presented an evening of Romantic and 20th century art songs, arias and works for solo piano on Sept. 7, 2018, in the Kennedy~Reedy Theatre at Emory & Henry College.

Withers’ solo piano performance focused on the works of little-known female contemporaries of Debussy and Fauré in France: Mélanie Bonis, Cécile Chaminade and Lili Boulanger. Helton presented a variety of lyrical and powerful songs and arias including works by composers Franz Liszt, Ottorino Resphighi and Reynaldo Hahn.
