Biography

Soprano Sarah Brailey is sought after as a soloist and chamber musician in a broad and varied repertoire that encompasses works from the Renaissance to the current day. Hailed by The New York Times for her "radiant, liquid tone” and “exquisitely phrased” singing, she made her Alice Tully solo debut last season in Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream with the American Classical Orchestra. Other recent highlights include solo appearances with the Mark Morris Dance Company, Trinity Wall Street Choir and Baroque Orchestra, Boulder Bach Festival, Helena Symphony, and Clarion Music Society. A keen supporter of contemporary music, Sarah has premiered works by John Zorn, Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs), Lera Auerbach, David del Tredici, Shulamit Ran, and George Tsontakis, among others. The 2013-2014 season features Britten’s Les Illuminations with Novus NY, Caldara’s Maddalena with The American Classical Orchestra, guest appearances with the contemporary vocal octet Roomful of Teeth, a program of Tarik O’Regan’s music with The Washington Chorus, and concerts with John Zorn at numerous venues in New York City, England (Huddersfield Festival), and Australia (Adelaide Festival). Recent opera engagements include Stefan Weisman’s The Scarlet Ibis with American Opera Projects and Lera Auerbach’s The Blind at The Lincoln Center Festival. More at sarahbrailey.com.

SIREN Baroque kicks off its third season with Fyer, Fyer!, the first of four concerts exploring the ancient elements, in a special collaboration with the innovative baroque dancers Laura Careless and Marisol Cabrera. The program features blazingly passionate works by Morley, Monteverdi, Rebel, Scarlatti, and Handel, all of which use fire as a metaphor for nature’s wrath, spiritual zeal, lustful ardor, or the terrors of hell. With SIREN Baroque’s “impassioned performances” (Early Music America) accompanied by strikingly seductive choreography, it promises to be an evening to ignite the senses.
