"Hope and heartache. Risk and redemption" ~ Live from Lincoln Center - Carousel

Last year I introduced you to my niece, Rachel Rhodes-Devey, and her role as Nellie Forbush in the national tour of South Pacific.  I promised that there would be more on Rachel in the future - and I am here as promised!

This time around, you get to see Rachel perform from the comfort of home!  For several nights this past February, Rachel was part of the ensemble in Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel", performing with the New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center - an amazing opportunity and experience.  The performance will be broadcast this coming Friday, April 26th, on PBS at 9:00 eastern time (check local listings).  See the preview in the above clip.

She's in there somewhere!
I know that I am biased, but it's wonderful!  I hope that you find the time to sit back and watch this talented group of performers.  Go Rachel, Go!!

A few more clips to whet your appetite!
