Laurel performs regularly in Art Song recitals, large choral works, and special community events.

This well-received performance featured works by Lee Hoiby, Ned Rorem, and Samuel Barber; Hector Berlioz; Richard Strauss; Joaquin Turina, Fernando Obradors, and Carlos Guastavino. Proceeds were donated to the Hurricane relief fund for Puerto Rico. Laurel was also seen at the San Francisco Public Library in their presentation of Poetry in Song, a recital featuring multiple performers and an eclectic array of art song by many well-known poets.

Throughout the bay area, soprano Laurel Sprigg has delighted audiences with her warm, vibrant singing as a concert soloist, recitalist, and chamber music soloist. In public performances, private events and intimate gatherings, her artistry is communicated through her fresh, clear, and heartfelt singing.
Performance has always been a part of Laurel's life. Her mother was a professional violinist, and her daily practice and regular chamber music gatherings inspired Laurel's own love of music. She studied piano as a child and cello and voice as a college student while majoring in dance.
An advocate of community engagement, Laurel has given recitals to benefit the Society for Community Work at the Unitarian Church in San Francisco, a Sausalito Song Society recital to benefit Hurricane Relief for Puerto Rico, and has sung programs for local retirement homes. She also sings for weddings, memorial services, and other community events.
