A Farewell chat with Sarah Olson
CRB: What are you most excited to perform?
Sarah: Of course I love all the works that we are performing, but I am most excited about Wade's new work, A Symphony For Hope. I think there is a lot to worry about in our current political climate, especially in regards to the Arts, and it is easy to get despondent. The flip side to that is this is now the perfect moment in time to band together and to fight for what we hold dear. Hope is a powerful catalyst for change.
CRB: What has been the most rewarding experience for you?
This will be my last season with CRB as I am stepping away from performing and I have to say the most rewarding part of this season was the breadth of the repertoire in this concert. I have both been able to revisit and re-imagine works that I have already performed and also be a part of the vibrant creative process for a new work. It's the best of both worlds.
