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, and has sung programs for local retirement homes. She also sings regularly for weddings, memorial services, and other community events.
Performance is a companion to Laurel's full-time business in fine sewing at the San Francisco Design Center. She also teaches Textile History for the UC Berkeley Extension Interior Design and Architecture program. Laurel has been featured in publications including Architectural Digest, Luxe Interiors + Design, and California Homes. You can see more about her work at laurelsprigg.com
Much of Laurel's work focuses around concert and recital events in intimate settings. In coordination with pianist Daniel Lockert, Laurel performed on the inaugural performance of a recital series curated by the newly-formed Sausalito Song Society. These performances focus on the art song repertoire.
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.
More recently, Laurel was seen in 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.
Laurel has produced many recitals and welcomes inquires about booking recitals for organizations and events.
