Soprano Rina Lucas is known for her powerful instrument, effortless range, and musical versatility. Comfortable in multiple genres, Rina is sought after as a soloist for weddings, recitals, concerts, and other special occasions. She was delighted to make her debut as the soprano soloist with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra for Handel’s Messiah at Mt. Zion AME Church in 2018 and return to this diverse stage in 2019.
In addition to her accomplishments as a vocalist, Rina is also a gifted visual artist working primarily in oils. Poetry accompanies every painting to further illuminate what is brushed onto the canvas. She recently made her first appearance with Piccolo Spoleto 2019 as a featured artist in voice, paint, and poetry for two productions including her own solo show, “Seasons: A Visual and Vocal Journey” alongside composer/pianist Arshak Sirunyan, with MOJA Arts Festival 2019 Juried Art Exhibition in Charleston, SC with her original oil grisaille portrait of Aretha Franklin entitled, “Respect”, and with Art Appalachia: 2020 Juried Art Exhibition at The Floyd Center for the Arts in Virginia with her original oil “Mr. Elijah’s Masterpiece”.

Largely self taught, Rina has been painting since her youth. Over 30 years later, she continues to use her very first Palette Knife given to her by her parents when they arranged for her to take a Bob Ross oil painting class at a local art store near her childhood home in Roanoke, Va. She was recently included in Art Appalachia:2020 Juried Art Exhibition in Floyd, VA as well as MOJA Arts Festival 2019 Juried Art Exhibition in Charleston, SC, and she made her first appearance with Piccolo Spoleto 2019 in Charleston, SC as a featured visual artist, soloist, and poet for two productions including her own solo show, “Seasons: A Visual and Vocal Journey” with composer/pianist Arshak Sirunyan.
