On Friday October 21st, Girondines began its premiere weekend run with Wilmington Concert Opera (WCO). Girondines, based on historical fact, is a new opera in English which focuses on the story of French Revolutionaries who presumably knew one another, met in secret before the Reign of Terror, and supported one another during the political upheaval. All six of the revolutionaries are women, and of these, three are guillotined and three live. I composed the opera’s score and crafted electronic soundscapes to intertwine with the music; for this concert opera premiere production, I am the pianist, music director, and technical director. Our stellar cast includes Girondines librettist and WCO Artistic Director and co-founder, Kirsten C. Kunkle as well as WCO Executive Director and Co-founder Marisa Robinson. Kirsten and Marisa originated the roles of Charlotte Corday and Marie Anne Pierrette Paulze Lavoisier, respectively; a full Cast list is included below.

To get a preview of the music itself, you can watch short clips from rehearsals on Instagram in the music section of my channel highlights or on my Facebook page. I expect you will particularly enjoy this video from when our librettist (and amazing soprano!) Kirsten rehearsed one of her arias in the role of Charlotte Corday with piano, violin, and cello earlier this week. Finally, Kirsten and I are so grateful that OperaWire interviewed us earlier this week about writing a feminist opera – hope you enjoy reading the interview! For any folks involved with voice, opera, theater, musical theater, or other performing arts venues, companies, festivals, or university programs, please let me know if you are interested in exploring opportunities to have your own reading, concert, or staging of Girondines.

Our final performance is TODAY at 2pm EST (11am PST)! If you will be attending in person, I look forward to seeing you at Presbyterian Church of the Covenant located at 503 Duncan Road, Wilmington, DE 19809. The performance is free and open to the public (no tickets required). Due to historical content, we recommend the opera for ages 13 and up. If you are unable to see attend this opera concert in person today, our production team will have a live stream option for today’s performance which you can watch via YouTube. Shortly before the show begins, you can tune in to watch from any laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Please be advised that livestream disruptions are possible, but it is our team’s hope and expectation that today’s digital presentation will run smoothly.

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

Fifty Days at Iliam – This Weekend!

This weekend, don’t miss the Philly Fringe production of “Fifty Days at Iliam.”

What is “Fifty Days at Iliam,” you ask?
It is a Philly-based theatre ensemble, devising a play exploring the Trojan War/inspired by Cy Twombly’s “Fifty Days at Iliam.” It is led by my sister, Hannah Van Sciver.

SNEAK PEEK 3: “Puzzle Pieces – EP” FULL SONG LYRICS ♫

COMING, THIS FALL:

“PUZZLE PIECES – EP.”

a BRAND NEW STUDIO ALBUM,

with SIX NEW SONGS by SARAH VAN SCIVER.

~

COMPLETE LYRICS:

1. PUZZLE PIECES

Oftentimes late as I try to sleep

I can’t shake these memories

No I can’t shake these memories

It’s like trying to shake down leaves off of springtime trees

 

You say something clever, cleverer than it had to be

You and me together, I picked your lock but was not the key

And then you picked me, and you set me free

Even though I didn’t want to be

 

We didn’t fit, like pieces of a puzzle that fool you for a second I reckoned

We’d work out together, but forevers turned to nevers

You ruined it, you showed me when you told me our edges didn’t match up quite right

In the shadows at night it wasn’t plain to see that you were never cut out for me

 

Can’t resist to think of you, I don’t even pretend to try (no I don’t)

I still find myself saying good, we didn’t finish saying goodbye (goodbye)

Unrequited and unsaid, there are so many things we didn’t do (never ever ever ever)

I deny it and hide it but instead, I’d rather tell you the truth (never ever ever ever)

That I think we had a shot, I feel bitter and not

That if we found ourselves in the same plot, I’d be caught

 

We didn’t fit, like pieces of a puzzle that fool you for a second I reckoned

We’d work out together, but forevers turned to nevers

You ruined it, you showed me when you told me our edges didn’t match up quite right

In the shadows at night it wasn’t plain to see that you were never cut out for me

 

Please don’t mistake me or take me for one of the common fools

Know I’d never intentionally break any hearts or any rules

You meant more to me, you kept more of me than I can express or admit

It’s such a shame you give yourself all the blame when we both made such a mess of it

 

Baby don’t go, I’ll fall apart

You’ve still got pieces of my heart

I’m begging you, just think this through, please don’t go

Baby don’t go, I’ll fall apart

You’ve still got puzzle pieces of my heart

I’m begging you, just think this through, don’t go

 

We didn’t fit, like pieces of a puzzle that fool you for a second I reckoned

We’d work out together, but forevers turned to nevers

You ruined it, you showed me when you told me our edges didn’t match up quite right

In the shadows at night it wasn’t plain to see that you were never cut out for me

Cut it out, cut it out, no no you were never cut out for me

 

2. OAK LEAF

Seasons are changing, I can taste it in the rain

And the wind that whispers down your autumn sky

Bringing cold and bleak of night and warmer light to say goodbye

Real love is natural like the phases of the moon

And the tide running to the open sea

So I stand tall and long and still

Knowing you will come back to me

 

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when I’ll leave you

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when we’ll fade away

 

You say it’s over, sonata rondo so to speak

And your song it echoes down the stormy shore

But tides will rip and sunbeams burn ‘til you return to me once more

My roots run deeper, far below to waters pure

And springs that murmur songs as old as life

Seasons change and I’ll still be here

Waiting near to be your wife

 

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when I’ll leave you

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when we’ll fade away

 

I’ll fade away, but baby not today

We’ll fade away, but baby not today

No baby, not today

 

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when I’ll leave you

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when we’ll fade away

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when I’ll leave you

When the last oak leaf falls, that’s when we’ll fade away

But baby, not today

 

3. REVERB RADIO

Every day we’re twisting up the volume

My little hum is building to a buzz

Solo nights all I do is dream a song of you

Where we swing upon the chord that ever was

Our amplifier, let’s drive it ’til we sing

 

I echo you, your loving radio

Soul station in the night

I echo you, the highest frequency you know

Dashboard dial bright

 

Audience is missing what we’re playing

Only we know there is no perfect third

Don’t listen to our vetted verse they’re slaying

Our poetry is writ in wet not word

Our desire, let’s drive it ‘til we sing

 

I echo you, your loving radio

Soul station in the night

I echo you, the highest frequency you know

Dashboard dial bright tonight

 

We can’t explain it, contain it or

Modulate a thing

I never fake it, please don’t break it

Evermore, nevermore, ever, ever, nevermore

 

Nevermore was spoken by the raven

Lust that lingered longing for Lenore

But I mean never more to be without your

Scatenato riven to my core

Not a lyre, let’s drive it ‘til we sing

 

I echo you, your loving radio

Soul station in the night

I echo you, the highest frequency you know

Dashboard dial bright, dashboard dial bright …

 

4. EVER AFTER

After the fall I couldn’t stand to be alone anymore

After it all I wanted something different from before

I started out feeling free, but I ended up feeling trapped in me

After the fall I wanted someone to love me for me

 

After the winter I still hadn’t found you, yet

Still a beginner, I learned to forgive but not to forget

I started out looking in my past, but it caught up with me pretty fast

After the winter I wanted someone to love me for me

After the snow I wanted to know there was somebody for me

 

When we met, I felt like I remembered you already

Like we were lovers before in a classic film, going steady

Things just clicked, a diamond in the rough I picked you out

From the crowd, and you picked me

 

After the spring I was a cynic but still convinced

You kiss a lot of frogs before you lock lips with your charming prince

I started out an epic fail, but ended up living in a fairytale

After the spring I found someone who loved me for me

 

When we met, I felt like I remembered you already

Like we were lovers before in a classic film, going steady

Things just clicked, a diamond in the rough I picked you out

From the crowd, and you picked me

 

Never ever, ever, ever after

Never ever, ever, ever after

After fall, after winter, after spring

Never knew I’d fall, after winter, after spring

 

When we met, I felt like I remembered you already

Like we were lovers before in a classic film, going steady

Things just clicked, a diamond in the rough I picked you out

From the crowd, and you picked me

 

5. BURN

You were always a quick chat, never a sit-down-and-talk

With no warning you left me at the corner of walk-don’t-walk

And now I don’t know where to turn

And now I don’t know how to feel, all I can do is burn, burn, burn

Burn, burn, burn

 

You were always making trouble, never could sit still

Maybe the saddest part of all is I think you never will, I know you never will

And now I don’t know where to turn

And now I don’t know how to feel, all I can do is burn, burn

 

Burn every picture, burn every ticket stub

Burn every reminder we were ever in love

It’d be easier to say it was nothing, but the ashes tell the truth

I can’t burn away the scraps of love I’m still clinging to

 

In another time zone, in another place you’re charming some other girl like me

She’s intoxicated by the smile on your face, but she’ll sober up you’ll see

And then she won’t know where to turn

And then she won’t know how to feel, all she can do is burn, burn

 

Burn every picture, burn every ticket stub

Burn every reminder we were ever in love

It’d be easier to say it was nothing, but the ashes tell the truth

I can’t burn away the scraps of love I’m still clinging to

 

If not by fire, maybe by rain

If at first I don’t succeed I’ll try, try again

If I can’t drown desire, I’ll bury it alive

I gotta let it all out from where it’s buried deep inside

If I can’t drown desire, I’ll bury it alive

I gotta let it all out, I gotta burn it all down, burn, burn

 

Burn every picture, burn every ticket stub

Burn every reminder we were ever in love

It’d be easier to say it was nothing, but the ashes tell the truth

I can’t burn away the scraps of love I’m still clinging to

I’m still clinging to you

 

6. ELEANOR (LIVE)

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

Even more it seems like you’re lying

You know you’re not even trying, and I’m not buying it

Yesterday you said you’d throw them all away

Then today I found it all in your bottom drawer

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

 

He’s not coming back you’ve been betrayed and

You know that you’ve been played

There’s so much more to you than him

Don’t let him win this war Eleanor

 

Eleanor why are you still keeping score

At your core I thought you wanted a new chapter

Unhappy-ever-after suits you less than your lost laughter

On the phone you said that you were all alone

I should have known you let him in again back for more

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

 

He’s not coming back you’ve been betrayed and

You know that you’ve been played

There’s so much more to you than him

Don’t let him win this war Eleanor

 

You’re letting him in you’re letting him win

You’re letting him spin you back around in circles

You’re letting him break you’re letting him take

You’re letting him waste your heart Eleanor

 

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

Eleanor change the locks on all your doors

Eleanor, Eleanor

Eleanor you’ve been through this all before

Eleanor why are you still keeping score

Eleanor, Eleanor

Eleanor, Eleanor

Spotlight on Musical Theatre Composition: “Pay 2 Play”

I am proud to announce that I am the composer for a brand new musical, currently in the works, called Pay2Play. It’s a satire of Philadelphia politics. Funnyman Brian Kerrigan is the author of the book/lyrics and he’s also the show’s producer. Writing the music to complement his hysterical, witty, amazing script is entirely too much fun.

We’ll be casting 5 roles for a web-based mini filmed version of the musical [casting early in June, shooting in August]. Please stay tuned for more updates on the project!

  • For more information about auditions and the web-based mini musical, check out our listing on Backstage.com

  • To hear demo piano-vocal recordings of excerpts of songs from the show, check out VoiceMakeDown’s Soundcloud page (the official SoundCloud site for our show’s production company)
