Chordless | Piano & Vocal Duo

Sara LeMesh, soprano and Allegra Chapman, piano seek to illuminate contemporary works that you probably haven’t heard before. The duo is passionate about creating welcoming spaces to explore and appreciate music that has historically been ignored. It is their belief that these overlooked works deserve not only to be heard, but also to be regularly performed so that they may enter the canon of established repertoire for voice and piano. Chordless is sponsored by Intermusic SF.

Sara LeMesh, Singer-songwriter

In addition to classical music, Sara composes songs for voice and piano. Her biggest musical inspirations include Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell and Tori Amos. When she’s not performing in traditional venues, you can find Sara sharing her original songs at open mics and house concerts throughout the Bay Area. Sara is currently working on several songs for synthesizer, piano and voice.
