Degree Recital: Sara LeMesh, mezzo-soprano

Bálint Zsoldos, piano

Sunday, April 27, 2014

A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, mezzo-soprano Sara LeMesh holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Vocal Performance from Rice University where she studied with opera singer Susanne Mentzer. She is currently enrolled in the Graduate Vocal Arts Program at Bard College under the direction of soprano Dawn Upshaw. A frequent concert soloist praised for her "plush mezzo-soprano" (The New York Times), recent performances include Stravinsky’s Pulcinella at the Music Academy of the West under the baton of Matthias Pintscher, Bach’s St. John Passion conducted by Leon Botstein at Bard College’s Fisher Center, and Mozart’s Requiem performed at Rice University. This spring, LeMesh will premiere the role of Anna in Shawn Jaeger’s opera, Payne Hollow, at the Bard College Conservatory of Music. The Californian mezzo recently covered Second Lady in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte at the Music Academy of the West and performed Third Spirit in the same opera at the Aspen Music Festival.
