GRAND PRIZE WINNER

Federation of the Art Song Fellowship

Sara LeMesh and pianist Allegra Chapman won First Prize in the Federation of the Art Song Fellowship Award Competition in November 2023. The dynamic pair offered a diverse program featuring works by underrepresented composers in a variety of languages, including Yiddish, Ladino, Polish, French, and German. They will debut their program, Voices of Identity: Songs of the Jewish Diaspora, at the Zimmerli Museum of Rutgers University and Princeton, New Jersey in the Spring of 2024.

“One of those songs, “Sveitaar, sveimen var Kvieoinen: ‘Koorwei, Koorwei’ ” pushed Sara LeMesh’s plush soprano into expressively guttural depths.”
