Angela Rice, composer
After years of studying voice and piano, teaching others, and tirelessly supporting the arts, Angela Rice decided to turn her considerable talents to composing.
That decision has thrilled audiences and performers alike.
“Many churches, community choirs and professional choirs will appreciate the level of musicality, musicianship, and artistry. It is a fantastic work.”
Everett McCorvey, executive producer of Thy Will Be Done and director of University of Kentucky Opera Theatre and the National Chorale
“The work is a wonderful worship experience for soloists, choir and audience alike. From a musical standpoint alone it could become one of the mainstays of the Easter season.”
Gregory Turay, Metropolitan Opera tenor and winner of the Richard Tucker Award who originated the role of Jesus
“In the grand scheme of church cantatas, Thy Will Be Done is a solid piece of work that should certainly be able to stand with a lot of other offerings on the church cantata market.”
— Rich Copley, Lexington Herald-Leader critic, wrote of the 2012 premier of what was later expanded to an oratorio.
