The CalArts Pool Fisheye Snapshot

Sarah Wass (Music MFA 03)

In June, Sarah Wass was appointed executive director of Brightwork newmusic, a Los Angeles-based performing arts organization dedicated to enlivening and expanding the repertoire of contemporary classical music. Brightwork newmusic accomplishes its mission through an in-house chamber ensemble (Brightwork Ensemble), a monthly concert series (Tuesday @ Monk Space), and by mentoring and teaching the next generation of musical artists through Project Beacon. Sarah will lead the organization’s fundraising, operational, and educational efforts, working alongside Founder and Artistic Director Dr. Aron Kallay. Brian Walsh (School of Music alum) is the clarinetist in Brightwork Ensemble, and many CalArtians have been featured on Tuesday @ Monk Space since its inception in 2013.
