The Kalamazoo Bach Festival will present lyric soprano Rhea Olivaccé in a solo recital called "The Many Facets of Love," this Sunday.

Ms. Olivaccé is a newcomer to west Michigan. A graduate of the University of Michigan, she tells Cara Lieurance about her Caribbean upbringing and her musical family. 

She talks about her decision to pursue classical music, and an operatic experience that shaped her life. Ms. Olivaccé also details the song choices she made for her recital, and praises accompanist Gunta Laukmane.

Cara Lieurance covers local music with live morning interviews, and produces WMUK's Let's Hear It weekday mornings at 10 am Mon-Fri, showcasing local interviews and performances. She also produces The Pure Drop, an hour of Celtic music, with musician Dave Marlatt.
