Sarah Hutchings is a composer and creative sought after for her lyricism and captivating musical energy. The Washington Post has hailed her music as an “appealing…sinuous” musical flavor, with works that capture drama and poetry, and sounds that color outside the lines. Fascinated by the use of aural color in all of her works, she gravitates to creative projects that are graphic, uninhibited, or evoke physicality.
Sarah was previously Composer in Residence with the Washington National Opera’s American Opera Initiative program, and Composer Fellow at the John Duffy Institute. She previously apprenticed composer Ricky Ian Gordon while assisting the workshop of Gordon’s opera, Morning Star, as part of the Opera Fusion program at Cincinnati Opera. She has also apprenticed composer Carlisle Floyd during his residency at the University of Cincinnati.
Sarah currently serves as Publishing Editor and Product Manager for Piano Publications at the FJH Music Company, Inc.
She splits her time between home bases in South Florida and New York City with a baritone and a cat.
