Rachel Currea began composing consistently when she was 19 years old as a way to relax from the rigors of classical music training and the demands of college and work. Shortly after she composed her first few pieces, she suffered a serious auto accident with head trauma. For the next ten years Rachel found it nearly impossible to compose, but continued to perform and teach piano. Her breakthrough in composing again came with learning the art of meditation. Her CD of piano solos, “Inner Sound” is a tribute to this creative and personal breakthrough.
Rachel waited until the last minute to enter the 2009 Talent Quest Miami competition and, as writer Lynette Zilio commented in the Miami Herald, “Last was certainly not least at 2009 Talent Quest Miami* finale. Pianist and composer Rachel Currea, the last of 12 performers, took home $500 and the opportunity to showcase her work after blowing the judges away with her original piece, ‘Hear Me Now’.” ~Lynette Zilio – The Miami Herald (Jul 28, 2009)Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
