Sara Yervand

Sara Yervand (former Erzinkian) was born in Armenia, and began to sing jazz, pop and Armenian folk music at the age of 15.

She made many stage performances in Armenia, European countries, including Paris (live appearance on a TV show “Sacree Soiree”) Vienna (where she lived for 3 years), Montreal, Zagreb (Yugoslavia) and others.

Her recordings with National Pop-Symphonic Orchestra of TV and Radio of Armenia under direction of conductor and composer Yervand Yerznkyan are outstanding. In May of 2005, Sara produced and released her first album “Introducing Sara Yervand,” which was followed with a CD release party at the “The Bar” of Concourse Hotel, th performance at the Isthmus Jazz Festival in June, and coming up performance at the Jazz @5 festival in August.

This CD project is a carefully selected collection of jazz standards with original arrangements that were written by Sara’s father, Yervand Yerznkyan. This CD features a group of truly one of kind musicians, Sara Yervand (Erzinkian) vocals, Armen Donelian (NY) on piano on tracks 3 and 10, Dave Stoler (piano), Jim Paolo (bass), Dane Richeson (drums/percussions), Dave Cooper (trumpet), Anders Svanoe (saxophones), and Matt Turner on cello.

She lives, works and sings jazz professionally in Madison, WI. She teaches at Madison School of Music and sings at Jazz Festivals and regional events. “

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
