Choeur Maha is pleased to announce that Sarah Rossy will be our Artistic Director starting in the fall of 2021.
SARAH ROSSY IS A MYTHICAL SONIC CREATURE OF SORTS, WITH A VOICE THAT IS COLOURFULLY CHAMELEONIC YET VULNERABLY HUMAN. Bouncing between Tio’tia:ke (Montréal), New York City, and Berlin, Sarah combines influences of jazz, experimental music, and interdisciplinary movement practices into her work for a truly unique result. As a composer, she has a keen interest in experiential processes which traverse through a feminist lens and nurture the ecosystems of artistic community. Recent excursions include: studying with Meredith Monk, voice/movement research at The World is Sound (Berlin), exploring her ethnic heritage at the Arabic Music Retreat, attending multiple residencies at Banff Centre for the Arts, and pursuing ancestral research with Diasporakidz Artist Collective in Diane Roberts'Arrivals Legacy Project. Sarah is a recent (and first Canadian) finalist of the Ella Fitzgerald International Voice Competition, and holds both a B.Mus and M.Mus from McGill University.
