September E-News

Greetings from sunny Southern California! Excited to share several updates with you:

October 21-23, 2022, Girondines, a new opera about six women from the French Revolution, will be premiered in Delaware with Wilmington Concert Opera (WCO). WCO Artistic Director and co-founder, Kirsten C. Kunkle, wrote the libretto, and I composed the music (and will be the pianist and music director for this premiere production) and have programmed electronics for soundscapes to intertwine with the music. Our stellar cast includes WCO Executive Director and Co-founder Marisa Robinson originating the role of Marie Anne Pierrette Paulze Lavoisier and Kirsten in the role of Charlotte Corday. I hope you RSVP, follow the project, and learn more via Eventbrite or Facebook. You can RSVP to let us know to look forward to seeing you there *or* you can RSVP that you are Unable to Attend if you want to be kept posted about the project (for instance, if a live-streaming option becomes available for any of the performances, we will be sure to email pertinent information to anyone who has selected the ‘keep me informed’ option.) Kirsten and I were recently interviewed about Girondines for those wondering what to expect at the premiere.

Earlier this month, I began working in a new role at the California Institute of the Arts as a Life and Work Advisor for the Patty Disney Center for Life and Work (a.k.a. CalArts Career Services) within the Institute’s Office of Student Experience. As an artist, educator, and CalArts alumna (MFA Music, Performer-Composer ’16), I am proud to empower fellow CalArtians to bolster and balance creative careers making art, making a living, and making a difference in my new role.

Meanwhile, I continue to write, arrange, record, and produce scores, songs, sound, video, and visuals for film/TV, theatre, dance, concert, opera, studio album, and commercial productions. I perform as a vocalist, pianist, harpist, ukulele player, and conductor/music director and mentor aspiring, emerging, and established artists. It is exciting to build momentum more and more on these fronts in the aftermath of the early days of the ongoing pandemic. For any of you seeking a creative collaborator for music, audio, video, visual/graphic design, sound, songs, jingles, lessons, mentorship, etc., I look forward to connecting with you to learn more about how I can help!

Wishing you and yours an awesome autumn ahead!

Cheers,

Sarah

Top Ten Radio Airplay/Jango Artist last week! (again!)

Last week, the music of “Ophelia’s Song” was extremely popular with Jango Internet Radio listeners. As a result, I received a PopScore of 99 on RadioAirplay and made it to their top ten list of Jango artists.
