Hailed by the New York Times as "a voice with considerable warmth," lyric-soprano Sarah Davis has been recognized as a gifted performer both on the recital and operatic stage.
Ms. Davis debuted with the Cleveland Orchestra under the baton of Matthias Pintscher and premiered Elliott Carter's "what are years" at Tanglewood Music Center and subsequently the French premiere with Radio France Orchestra; she premiered John Harbison’s "Vocalism II" at SongFest; and also premiered Barbara White's one-act, one-woman opera Weakness at Princeton University. This year she premiered Natascha Greenwald's Transit of Metis and was featured in Christin Call's short film, "what is home" with Coriolis Dance Company in Seattle. In addition, she sang the one-act opera based on the true story of Holocaust survivor Krystyna Zywulska, Another Sunrise by Jake Heggie for Music of Remembrance.
Notable concert credits include: Verdi Requiem, Mendelssohn Midsummer Night’s Dream, Mahler Symphony No. 2, Orff Carmina Burana, Vaughan Williams Dona nobis pacem, Brahms Requiem, Beethoven Missa Solemnis and Ninth Symphony. Operatic roles include Fiordiligi, Pamina, Cendrillon, Susannah (Floyd) Anne Trulove, Gilda and Frau Fluth in Merry Wives of Windsor.
Sarah holds degrees from Trinity University in Texas and the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University. She loves Khatchaturian's Masquerade Suite, the art of hand-lettering, twirling on the Latin dance floor, flea markets, Picasso's rose period, Frank's Red Hot Sauce, and the soft light that hits the facades of the city at dusk. She currently resides in Berlin, Germany.
