Texas native Rachel Slusky is currently a senior at The Boston Conservatory. She is pursuing a degree in vocal performance and studies with Monique Phinney. Rachel has always had a passion for the arts, namely painting, choral arts, musical theatre, and opera. Her interest started at the age of five, when she played the role of Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz. Since then, she has performed in a variety of productions, including most notably: Johanna in Sweeney Todd,Rapunzel in Into the Woods Jr, and her first opera performance as chorus in The Boston Conservatory's production of The Marriage of Figaro. Also at the Boston Conservatory, she created the role of Melissa Block in the world premiere of The Millennium Problem, a hilarious musical by Dan Ryan and Ian Sullivan.
In addition to being an advocate for new music, Rachel aspires to be a cantor. Coming up, Rachel will be performing with Zamir Chorale, a choir dedicated to disseminating beautiful and rarely heard Jewish music conducted by Joshua Jacobson. In Rachel's spare time, she enjoys welding and programming recitals.
