SARA LEMESH | SOPRANo
“Sara LeMesh was a mesmerizing Bess. The soprano projected the character’s anguish, fervency and increasingly fragile emotional state in an urgent, tonally secure and affectingly plangent vocal performance.”

Music Video Premiere

Ms. LeMesh premiered a music video created with her piano-vocal duo, Chordless. In February 2020, they recorded and filmed "The Night in Silence Under Many a Star" from George Crumb's Apparition. Joshua Kosman of the San Francisco Chronicle praised the "heartbreakingly beautiful" film and the San Francisco Classical Voice praised the duo for "provide[ing] a futuristic model for classical music."
Ercole su'l Termodonte by Vivaldi
Ms. LeMesh makes her debut with Pacific Opera Project in Los Angeles, California during December 2020 (exact date TBD due to COVID-19). She will perform Martesia in the U.S. Premiere of Ercole su'l Termodonte by Vivaldi. Written in 1723, the opera was recently rediscovered in libraries in Münster, Paris, and Turino.
“One of those songs, “Sveitaar, sveimen var Kvieoinen: ‘Koorwei, Koorwei’ ” pushed Sara Lemesh’s plush soprano into expressively guttural depths.”
