Sara Bielanski is a versatile American vocalist whose varied repertoire encompasses jazz, gospel, R&B, opera and art song, and improvisation. Her voice has been described by critics as resplendent, and her contemporary interpretations as unforgettable, the real thing, and mystifying and beautiful (artfuse.org, 2012).
An avid jazz musician, Sara has performed with legends Sheila Jordan, Ra-Kalam Bob Moses, Rufus Reid, Jim McNeely, Stan Strickland, and Peter Cassino, and had the distinct pleasure of studying with the late Charlie Banacos. Bielanski studied at the esteemed Jazz in July program at UMass Amherst, as well as the Lake Placid Jazz Institute in upstate New York. She has sung at major Boston and New York venues, most notably at Ryles, Acton Jazz Cafe, Top of the Hub, the Boston Esplanade, Club OBERON, and in New York at the JP Morgan Penthouse.
