     Returning from 5 years of singing and managing Opera On Tap San Francisco in the Bay Area, Soprano Sarah Fletcher is looking forward to performing in the Northwest again as she kicks off her tenure in the Seattle Opera Chorus fall of 2019.


Previously with Seattle Opera, Sarah has performed in productions of Turando, Fidelio, and The Speight Jenkins Farewell Gala Concert.  With an education from the University of Puget Sound, Sarah has also studied and performed in Europe with the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria, as well as with the operatic studies program OperaWorks out of Los Angeles, CA. She was awarded a 2013 Young Artist Grant through the Seattle Opera Guild, and was the winner of the 2010 Michael Mitchell award for First Place Operatic Vocal Performance in the PAFE Competition.


Described by Crosscut magazine as   “… a far darker soprano, like steamy coffee stirred with a dollop of cream”, Sarah has  most recently been featured with orchestra in roles such as Vitellia from Mozart's 'La Clemenza Di Tito' with Symphonia Caritas, and Dido in Purcell's 'Dido and Aeneas' with Bay Area Classical Harmonies and Orchestra.  In addition, she has performed operatically and acrobatically in the role of 'Mercedes' in an aerial operatic performance of Carmen staged in Oakland, California with Opera On Tap San Francisco. Under current tutelage of Sheri Greenawald of San Francisco Opera and the Merola Program, Ms. Fletcher also enjoys teaching yoga professionally to singers and non-singers alike.
