About Sara LeMesh
Sara LeMesh, of San Rafael, CA, is a versatile soprano with a passion for opera, new music, and composition. Sara’s songs represent multiple influences; they draw upon her classical training, interest in American folk music, and love for Irish ballads. Her innate musicianship manifests through striking vocals that feature a three-octave range, as well as her finely crafted piano accompaniments. In addition to her musical talents, Sara is an accomplished lyricist with a natural propensity towards poetic yet deeply confessional language.
As a classically trained singer, Sara has performed internationally to the acclaim of many critics, most notably the New York Times, who praised her “plush” voice that plunges to “expressively guttural depths.” A frequent guest soloist with orchestras, Sara has performed under the baton of Stéphane Denève, Matthias Pintscher, and Leon Botstein.
