She has been awarded many prizes, including the Royal Dublin Society Bursary, the London Bach Singers Prize and second prize in the prestigious Kathleen Ferrier Competition at the Wigmore Hall, London. Sarah has appeared in productions for Welsh National Opera, Buxton Opera Festival, Wexford Festival Opera, Irish National Opera and Opera Collective Ireland and made her debut for Scottish Opera in the title role of Handel’s Rodelinda. She has been involved in the premiere of many works, including Hazel: Made in Belfast at the Carnegie Hall, New York, Mary Gordon with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra at the National Concert Hall Dublin and Janice Kerbel’s Turner Prize-nominated work DOUG at the Tramway in Glasgow. She is also a keen recitalist and has performed at prestigious recital venues including the Wigmore Hall and St. Martin-in-the-Fields in London and Haus der Musik in Vienna. Sarah has over 15 years of experience as a wedding and funeral singer. She is based in Glasgow but is happy to travel to surrounding areas for your event. She is comfortable performing hymns, arias and songs in different styles, including classical, opera, sacred, traditional folk song, musical theatre and modern classics. When it comes to finding the right music for your ceremony or event Sarah will provide personal, stress-free support. She can tailor the music to suit your event and is more than happy to talk through your ideas. An accompanist can be arranged to play the organ / keyboard or, if preferred, Sarah can perform with backing tracks. Sarah's qualifications include a Degree and Masters in Music Performance and she is a Member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians (MISM).

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Unfortunately not.

How much time do you need to set up?

I like to arrive 30-40 minutes before the event to set up and have a short rehearsal.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Absolutely. I'm also happy to chat through your ideas.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I can bring backing tracks. I can also help you to find an accompanist if you would prefer one, who will either play the keyboard / organ at the venue if available or else bring their own.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance that I know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £10 for this service to take into account rehearsal time etc.

But it was the soprano Sarah Power who made the deepest impression. She possesses an easeful, limpid voice that made 'How beautiful are the feet' utterly memorable.

Sarah Power, soprano, sang with beauty and ease, her entrancing tones delicately filling the huge nave.
