Sarah Yanovitch

Soprano

Recognized by The Boston Globe as “a name to keep an eye on”, soprano Sarah Yanovitch has been noted for her rich sound and musical sensitivity. A frequent soloist with Boston’s Handel and Haydn Society under the direction of Harry Christophers, she recently sang the role of Belinda in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and as soloist in Bach’s B minor and G major masses.

During the 2016-2017 season, Ms. Yanovitch was the Lorraine Hunt Lieberson Fellow with Emmanuel Music, regularly appearing as a featured soloist. She has sung with such leading choral ensembles as Bach Collegium San Diego, The Thirteen, Yale Choral Artists, and Grammy®-nominated Seraphic Fire. Other solo credits include the roles of Cupid and Venus in King Arthur with the Henry Purcell Society of Boston, Mozart’s Mass in C minor and Handel’s Judas Maccabaeus and Dixit Dominus at Boston University Marsh Chapel, and Bach’s Mass in B minor with Masaaki Suzuki and Juilliard 415.

While earning her Master of Music in Early Music Voice at Yale, Ms. Yanovitch worked with conductors Masaaki Suzuki, David Hill, and Simon Carrington, touring as a soloist throughout the United States, Italy, France, The Baltics, India, and the UK.
