She earned a degree in vocal performance at SVSU where she was a voice student of Dr. Julie Meyer. Rayechel is also a private voice teacher.
Vocal music for the Evensong will include "Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis" (Plainsong with fauxbourdons) by Philip Moore (b.1943) and "Jesus, Shepherd, Keep Thou Near Me" by J. S. Bach (1685-1750).
