Sarah Reynolds is a singer and voice teacher based in Los Angeles. Equally at home in concert and opera, she has performed with Artes Vocales of Los Angeles, Pasadena Opera, Opera Animata, and Long Beach Opera. Sarah is also a member of the De Angelis Vocal Ensemble and sang on their debut recording released in 2016. An art song enthusiast, Sarah was a featured recitalist in Pasadena Conservatory of Music’s Mansions & Music concert series and recently made her debut with the UnSUNg concert series, specializing in the performance of both uncommon and new works. This season she joins the Denver Art Song Project as a featured soloist for two concerts. An emerging Baroque specialist, her past roles include Dido in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Orfeo in Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice with Opera Animata and Bradamante in Handel’s Alcina with the Napa Music Festival. A frequent concert soloist, Sarah’s recent credits include the Bach St. Matthew Passion, Duruflé Requiem, and Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb with Artes Vocales of Los Angeles and Brahms’ Alto Rhapsody with the Colburn Chorale. This season, she returns as one of Long Beach Opera’s four Education Artists. Sarah received her Bachelors in Vocal Performance from The College of New Jersey and Masters in Vocal Performance from The New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA.

A life-long advocate for music and performing arts education, Sarah was a registered Music Together teacher from 2010-2013 and served on the teaching staff of Dragonfly DuLou, where she also offered youth improv classes. During the same period she was an Artist-in-Residence at the Hollywood Children’s Garden Preschool, where she shared her own dynamic curriculum in weekly music classes. Before moving to LA, Sarah taught music and performing arts for several years within the Boston Public school system. Sarah currently teaches private voice lessons to students of all ages out of her home studio in Eagle Rock and is a Vocal Coach for the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus. She was a 2014 Backstage Magazine Reader’s Choice Nominee for LA Vocal/Singing Coach and featured as one of their “8 Great Vocal Coaches in NYC and LA.”

Sarah is a former cast member of the ImprovBoston theater (awarded “Best of” comedy clubs in the Boston Phoenix and the Improper Bostonian several years running) and has performed regionally at many comedy festivals, including the Del Close Marathon in NYC and Boston’s Women in Comedy Festival. She co-created a fully improvised and interactive ImprovBoston Family Show (Nickelodeon Parents’ Pick Award 2009), and performed with IB’s Mainstage, Harold Teams, and in featured shows such as Tiny Little Lungs, a two-woman improvised musical/opera, and The Wasteland Comedy Hour with T.S. Eliot, a multi-media sketch show for which she contributed as a writer, performer, and music director. Sarah has taught improv to adults and children both through ImprovBoston’s workshops, and in association with Young Audiences, a national program that brings professional performance arts educators into public schools.
