Redshift Radio Episode 5- Sarah Jo Kirsch

January 17, 2022

On this episode of Redshift Radio, Adrian Verdejo interviews Vancouver-based soprano Sarah Jo Kirsch. 

They discuss Sarah Jo's recent activities and plans since moving to Vancouver, and their musical evolution to becoming a performer of Art Song and contemporary music. They discuss the importance of sharing music which is culturally and socially relevant to the modern world.


An accomplished interpreter of western art music, Sarah Jo Kirsch (she/they) has performed across Canada, in Europe and West Asia as a soloist and collaborator. They have been hailed as " of the finest contemporary dramatic vocalists in Canada today," (Calgary Herald) "...with the ability to get under the skin of everything she sings," (Winnipeg Free Press). Having premiered more than 30 new works for voice, Sarah also curates and produces socio-politically relevant art song experiences of works from the last three centuries.


As a creator, Sarah weaves electroacoustic tapestries inspired by the primally physical nature of resonance. As a pundit, they lecture on the ins and outs of western art music on behalf of cultural and educational institutions and on community, public, and commercial radio. They also keep a small studio of private students from around the world.
