Meet Sarah Grace Graves
Sarah Grace Graves is a singer and composer of experimental music living in Paris, France. Her music contextualizes voice and instrument within the performer’s internal landscape of emotion, physical sensation, and sense memory.
In March 2021 her experimental vocal recital Songs from the Chalet was released on Divertimento Ensemble’s Young Performers on Digital Stage concert series, featuring Graves performing her own compositions alongside selections from Erin Gee’s Mouthpiece series and Giacinto Scelsi’s Canti del Capricorno. Her festival appearances include Voix Nouvelles Academy at Royaumont, Northwestern University New Music Conference, Westben Performer-Composer Residency, IlSuono Contemporary Music Week, Nief-Norf Summer Festival, and Estalagem da Ponta do Sol Residency for contemporary music and electronics.
She performs Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Stimmung with the Italian contemporary vocal ensemble Fragmente and is a founding member of Mockingbird and Magpie, an experimental voice/cello duo with Toronto-based composer and cellist Cory Harper-Latkovich.
Sarah Grace holds a Master of Arts in Composition from UC Berkeley and a Bachelor of Music in Composition from Rice University. From 2021 until 2022 Sarah Grace will be a Harriet Hale Woolley Fellow at the Fondation des États-Unis in Paris. She studies voice with Nicholas Isherwood.
