Willoughby Symphony launched its 2024 season, which includes Sarah conducting Dvorak's 'Stabat Mater' with the Willoughby Symphony Choir. Read the Limelight article here.
Sarah was generously featured recently in the Narrandera Argus after visiting the With One Voice Riverina choir as part of The Cad Factory's Narrandera Parkside Cottage Museum project.
In June we were thrilled to receive an Australia Council grant to premiere and tour OCDiva. Check out our OCDiva page for information about upcoming NSW performance locations and dates.
This is the second grant the project has received, with Dr Eve Klein from The University of Queensland (UQ) School of Music being awarded an Arts Projects for Individuals and Groups grant by the Australia Council for the Arts to work in collaboration with singer/performer Yasmin Arkinstall.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
