“Rarely have I come across as talented and noteworthy a person as Rachel DeShon,” – Marvin Hamlisch
With a voice that has been called “undeniably fantastic”, Seattle native Rachel DeShon was the winner of Marvin Hamlisch’s Search for a Star competition with the Seattle Symphony and a guest artist on his national symphony tour. Deemed “Seattle’s Littlest Diva” she’s performed with Joan Baez, Ann Wilson, Thelma Houston, Norman Durkee, Lilianne Montevecchi and Frank Ferrante. Rachel made her debut with the Seattle Men’s Chorus in their Legacy concert series, featuring the two critically acclaimed works, I Am Harvey Milk and Tyler’s Suite, appearing with Andrew Lippa as Harvey Milk. She premiered Seattle Opera’s production of Our Earth, a newly commissioned cycle of operas, in partnership with the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra. Additional highlights include the Boston POPS!, Seattle Symphony Pops, Pittsburgh Symphony Pops, Teatro ZinZanni, 5th Avenue Theatre, Singapore’s Esplanade Concert Hall, Elgin Symphony Orchestra, Federal Way Symphony, Bainbridge Symphony, and her debut of In Recital with the late pianist, composer Norman Durkee. She is also the founder and co-director of The Moore Artist Collective, an artist driven production company, powered by Shunpike. Currently she is working in collaboration with award winning Toronto playwright and director Robert Morgan and pianist, composer Avi Lasser, creating I AM. I AM is a solo opera for young people and their families. I AM becomes an extraordinary tribute to one young girl’s quite ordinary capacity to triumph.
