Emily Helenbrook, 16, is becoming known as a very promising soprano on the way up. She has delighted audiences for the Viva Vivaldi Festival, the Friends of Vienna Concert Series -- and even on "CBS Sunday Morning," when she appeared on a segment about soprano Renee Fleming. Helenbrook studies at the Eastman School of Music with Fleming's mother -- and the famous diva herself has coached her.
At 1 p.m. Sunday, Helenbrook will give a recital at Nativity United Church of Christ (1530 Colvin Blvd., Kenmore). She will sing a variety of selections, ranging from opera arias to contemporary religious songs. A $10 donation is suggested. For info or tickets, call 875-3365.
