Sarah Mesko

— Mezzo-Soprano

"The powerhouse mezzo, Sarah Mesko, inhabited this role. Her voice has a rich velvet sheen, and yet still it has the flexibility to roll out the coloratura lines Handel wrote."
Marilyn Farwell, The Register Guard, July 12, 2017 - Dejanira in "Hercules" at Oregon Back Festival

“Mesko, padded to reduce the appearance of womanly curves, was an appealing and solid Hansel.”
Anne Midgette, Washington Post, December 23, 2012 - Hansel in "Hänsel und Gretel" at Washington National Opera

“[Casey Candebat’s] impassioned Werther to Sarah Mesko’s gorgeously sung Charlotte was one of the truly memorable scenes of the evening.”
Janos Gereben, San Francisco Classical Voice, August 18, 2012 - Charlotte in "Werther" at Merola Grand Finale

“Mezzo-soprano Sarah Mesko had the most consistently beautiful sound as Suzuki, with a particularly robust chest voice…”
Charles Downey, Washington Post, March 16, 2011 - Suzuki in "Madama Butterfly" at Washington National Opera
