Hailed by the New York Times as "a voice with considerable warmth," and the Boston Globe as "elusive, delicate, silvery and persuasive," lyric-soprano, Sarah Davis has been recognized as a gifted performer both on the recital and operatic stage. Ms Davis is available for private parties, weddings, funerals and special events. Although her repertoire focuses heavily on the classical side, she is happy to branch out to the genres of Broadway, Standards and Folk Songs. Recent recital repertoire included Gershwin, Porter, Puccini, Mozart and Strauss. Also: Over the Rainbow, Summertime, Panis Angelicus, Ave Maria, You'll Never Walk Alone

More sound samples are available on her personal website.
Ms. Davis debuted with the Cleveland Orchestra this year, singing under the baton of composer/conductor Matthias Pintscher and most recently premiered Elliott Carter's song cycle for soprano and chamber orchestra, "What are years" at the Tanglewood Music Festival, under the baton of Oliver Knussen. Other season highlights include her debut with the Albany Symphony singing Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream and Haydn's Mass in Time of War with Vox Ama Deus at the Kimmel Center. Opera credits include: Gilda (Rigoletto) and Pamina (Magic Flute) with Center City Opera Theater, Anne Trulove (Rake's Progress) and Echo (Ariadne auf Naxos) with the Chautauqua Institution and Cendrillon (Massenet's Cinderella) and Nannetta (Falstaff) with Peabody Opera Theater. She made her professional song recital debut with the "Trinity at One Concert Series" in New York City, appeared in the Joy in Singing series at the Lincoln Center Library and premiered John Harbison's grand aria for soprano and piano, Vocalism, at SongFest in Malibu,CA. Ms. Davis was an Artist in Residence at the Cleveland Art Song Festival (2008, 2010) and spent two summers in residence as a Vocal Fellow with the Tanglewood Music Center. Recital repertoire includes: Britten's Les Illuminations, Villa-Lobos' Bachianas Brasileiras, Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn, Larsen's Try me, good king and Heggie's Rise and Fall. Upcoming engagements include Orff's Carmina Burana with Berkshire Lyric Theater,Vaughan Williams' Dona nobis pacem with the North Valley Chorale (AZ) and the role of Donna Anna in Mozart's Don Giovanni with the Chesapeake Chamber Opera in Baltimore, MD.

The delightful Sarah Davis sang at a dinner party in Manhattan as our gift to a friend celebrating his 60th birthday, and she was, simply, extraordinary. Sarah was engaging and charming, and she sang gorgeously -- a selection of Massenet and Puccini arias (including a special request, “Signore, Ascolta” from Turandot), as well as Happy Birthday in Italian. Her voice and stage presence filled the room and left us all speechless. The sound clips we had heard prior to hiring her truly hadn’t done her justice. And she looked stunning in a resplendent long pink satin skirt. Bravo. We cannot wait to hire her again.

Sarah was GREAT! She arrived early and was very accomodating to myself and my family. She performed the songs at my mother's memorial service with the voice of an angel. Everyone at the service complimented her performance, which made for a beautiful service. I would reccomend Sarah in a heartbeat. She went way beyond what we had hoped for.

I wasn't sure what to expect since this was the first time I booked a singer for an event & Sarah proved to be an outstanding talent. She was very accomodating with the song requests..I don't think that there is a song out there that she can't sing! She was very pleasant to talk to & didn't rush through our conversation. Our special request songs were "Crying in the Chapel" (Elvis) & "You Raise me Up" (Josh Groban) - she sang them beautifully. Her "Ave Maria" was one of the best I've ever heard. She sang for my Aunt who passed away on June 1st, 2011. My Aunt was a very special lady and Sarah's voice added a beautiful tribute to her memory. Thank you again, Sarah!
