As a conductor and performer, Sarah is interested in the theologies that inform musical performance practice, especially in Western art music. She is also interested in the broader idea of the necessity of musical pursuits to basic human flourishing as this reflects on our being image bearers of God. Practically speaking, she hopes to be involved in curriculum development as it relates to reinstating music and fine arts (the ‘beautiful’) to the established ‘good’ and ‘true’ in contemporary post-secondary educational contexts; thus providing a better and more multi-faceted understanding of the nature and person of God.
Sarah can usually be found reading in coffee shops or bookstores, singing in churches, practice rooms, or kitchens, or plotting her next hiking adventure. If you engage her in conversation, there is a 100% chance she will obnoxiously foist upon you pictures of her adorable nieces and nephews. Sadly, she can’t knit.
