Workshop: “Interdisciplinary Production: Borderless Expression | Intersections of Equity, Self-Preservation & Artistic Practice”
Sarah Rossy | Vocalist, Composer, Multi-Disciplinary Artist, Professor
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, and attending multiple residencies at Banff Centre for the Arts. Sarah is a recent (and first Canadian) finalist of the Ella Fitzgerald International Voice Competition, her work has been supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec, Conseil des arts de Montréal, and Socan Foundation. Sarah holds both a B.Mus and M.Mus from McGill University, and is currently on faculty at the McGill Conservatory of Music and Dawson College.
