Sarah Bob | piano
Pianist Sarah Bob, hailed as “sumptuous and eloquent” by the Boston Globe, is an active soloist and chamber musician noted for her charismatic performances, colorful playing and diverse programming. Considered a “trailblazer when it comes to championing the works of modern composers and combining art media in the process…” (Northeast Performer), she is founding director of the New Gallery Concert Series, a series that combines new music and new visual art along with their creators. The goal, her strong suit, is to introduce music in a loving, inclusive, and intoxicating way. Inspired by current events, she is also the creator of ”The Nasty Cooperative:” numerous pop up dialogue driven artistic events created to build community, help raise funds for organizations in need, and encourage others to do the same. She is an original member of Radius Ensemble, Primary Duo, and Firebird Ensemble and maintains accolades ranging from top prizewinner of Holland’s International Gaudeamus Competition to New England Conservatory’s Outstanding Alumni Award. She can be heard on Tzadik, Avie Records, (Lift by Elena Ruehr recognized by WBUR’s The ARTery as one of the best classical recordings of 2016), NLM, Cauchemar Records, Albany, Oxingale and BMOP/Sound labels. Sarah holds degrees from the University of Michigan School of Music and the New England Conservatory, maintains her own private studio, is visiting faculty at the Longy School of Music of Bard College, teaches at the Community Music Center of Boston, and is The Music Mansion’s 2019 Artist-in-Residence. Her solo piano arrangement of Lee Hyla’s “My Life on the Plains” will be published by Carl Fischer this fall.
