Press Quotes & Testimonials:
“The (Yeats Project’s) music is a mixture of Sarah’s originals and arrangements… It was the arranging which struck me when I first heard the music back in 2012; the poems lend themselves to beautiful, lush treatments, and Sarah uses the ensemble’s nine instruments to great effect. The result is contemporary sounding but still tuneful, an interesting mix of chamber music and improvisation; Sarah’s impressive vocals soar over top.” – Josh Grossman- Artistic Director, Toronto Downtown Jazz
