Mezzo-soprano Sarah Hoch is elated to come-a-wassailing with The Village Carolers this holiday season! Originally from Massachusetts and an alum of the Drake University Musical Theatre BFA program, Sarah has spent the last five years moving around the country for her love of music and theatre. After graduating, she spent a year as a company member of Playhouse on the Square in Memphis, where she took on roles in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (Hedy), Annie (Grace), Spring Awakening (Wendla), Avenue Q (Bad Idea Bear/Swing), Xanadu (Erato), and Present Laughter (Joanna), among others. Based out of Chicago for the next four years, Sarah was a regular performer for the Chicago Cabaret Project, also with whom she was a Christmas caroler for three years at the Peninsula and Drake Hotels and corporate events. You may have seen her in her Dickensian wear on Monday Night Football in front of the famous Drake Hotel Christmas tree. Other favorite musical theatre roles from her travels include Charity in Sweet Charity (MadKap Productions); Vivienne in Legally Blonde (Midtown Arts Center); Casey in First Date (Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati); Dyanne in Million Dollar Quartet, Rizzo in Grease, and Cindy Lou in Winter Wonderettes (Old Creamery Theatre); Louise in Gypsy, Evelyn Nesbit in Ragtime, Bella in Lost in Yonkers (Great Plains Theatre); and Millie in Why Do Fools Fall in Love (St. Vincent Summer Theatre). Sarah recently moved to New York and shortly after joined Actors Equity. She enjoys teaching young students how to belt healthily with her background in Jo Estill pedagogy, dabbling in guitar and piano, and developing new musicals with her husband, composer David Kornfeld.
