Young soprano Emily Helenbrook plans Christmas recital


By Mary Kunz Goldman

Emily Helenbrook, the very talented young soprano who is currently a sophomore at the Eastman School of Music, is giving a Christmas recital at Blessed Sacrament Church.

The recital, which supports Veterans Voices, takes place at 3 p.m. Sunday. Emily, pictured above, will be joined by pianist Orlando Buenos Diaz in a range of Christmas selections. Tickets are available at the door for a $10 donation.

Miss Helenbook has been heard singing with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, with the Ars Nova Musicians at Buffalo's Viva Vivaldi Festival and on the radio show "From the Top." At 10, as the Gusto Blog has chronicled, she received encouragement from renowned diva Kathleen Battle. Sunday's recital offers a great chance to catch up with how her voice is evolving as well as take a breather from the holiday bustle.

Blessed Sacrament Church is at 1035 Delaware Ave.
