Soprano Sarah Abigail Griffiths is hailed for her “glowing tone, effortless facility and vivid expressivity” (Dallas Morning News), and has appeared as soloist and chorister with professional ensembles throughout the United States. She can be heard on recordings with Armonia Celeste (Centaur) and New York Virtuoso Singers (Naxos), and she is featured singing Alice Parker’s song cycle Dickinson: On Recollecting in a 2017 recording for Gothic. She has performed U.S. premieres by Bob Chilcott and Thea Musgrave and world premieres by Katherine Hoover, Edward Smaldone, and Martha Sullivan. She holds degrees from the University of North Texas, Westminster Choir College, and Earlham College, and is adjunct professor at Ramapo College and William Paterson University.
The year 2020 has presented considerable challenges for live performance. However, Ms. Griffiths’ performances in the past two seasons have included a program of opera arias and duets with wife Tami Petty and Gettysburg Chamber Orchestra, performances of Poulenc’s Mass in G and Bach Cantata 140 with Sacred Music in a Sacred Space, Beethoven’s Mass in C with the Schiller Institute, and the US premiere of Thea Musgrave’s Voices of our Ancestors with Virtuoso singers. In May 2020 she had the opportunity to perform in a live virtual performance of J.S. Bach’s Magnificat with Hunter College Choir, and she continues to perform weekly in the virtual choral offerings by the St. Ignatius of Loyola Choir in New York City.
