Sarah answered a few questions about what she’ll work on in May. Meet Sarah and our other artists by joining us for a free workshop or the Open Lab Performance on May 17!
What are you working on in May?
This year I will be working on combining an opera aria with a pop song. Through this project, I will incorporate several instruments and hopefully add choreography to bring the project to life.
Why did you want to work with IC this year?
What interestedÂ me aboutÂ Indy Convergence was its ability to bring all forms of art together. I really loved the idea that I would be able to work with and learn from a wide array of talent. I look forward to building my own craft in a way that most other programs do not explore.
