BIRTHDAY UPDATE!!! September 5th, 2018

HAAAAAPPY Birthday to SASS!!! To help you celebrate our 3rd birthday, we released special details on a few of our recitals leading up to the 9th.

Our partner on the project "Beyond the Guarded Gate",
E.C. Schirmer, posted a fantastic blog entry on their website that gives some background on the project and includes quotes from the composer of Through the Guarded Gate and from our director, Brian! Click HERE to go read the blog! didn't think that was ALL we were giving you today, did you?? We have also released the art work selected for this recital. Artist Anika Orrock created this awesome image and shared it for free with Amplifier which is an awesome nonprofit that shares free art for public non-commerical use (thank you!!). This work was chosen to represent this recital.


Help us celebrate this birthday and many more to come by going to our Donate page and sharing a gift with SASS today.

 SASS is proud to be presenting the world premiere of the cycle Through the Guarded Gate which we commissioned from composer Juliana Hall as a part of this recital.

Not only will we have the honor and privilege of presenting the world premiere of this work, but we are working to create an international tour of this work called "Beyond the Guarded Gate." We have over 170 interested mezzo sopranos and pianists from around the globe (including all 50 states in the US) that will perform this cycle after the world premiere as part of their own recitals. Details on this project will be released as they are available, and an interactive map will be available to show you where and when you can go out and see the cycle near you! Special thanks to E.C. Schirmer for making this project possible by gifting each artist (singer and pianist) with a digital copy of the score to use free of charge (that's over $8,000!!!). 

Other details on this recital will be released shortly. We are working to put the finishing touches on programming. If you would like to have a voice in programming for this recital please contact us at to join the committee for this recital.
