Sarah Jo Kirsch is a soprano/vocalist currently based in Winnipeg, Canada. She continues to make waves as a recitalist and soloist in North America, Europe, and the Middle East. Winner of the 2014 Eckhardt-Gramatté National Music Competition, she has been described as "...one of the finest contemporary dramatic vocalists in Canada today..." (Calgary Herald) "...with the ability to get under the skin of everything she sings..." (Winnipeg Free Press).

The 2016-17 season brings recitals in Winnipeg and beyond, soloist appearances with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, the Winnipeg Philharmonic Choir, the American University of Beirut, at the WSO's Impressionist Festival and New Music Festival as well as Winnipeg's Groundswell concert series.
