Mezzo-soprano Sarah Mattox is a First Prize Winner of the Belle Voci National Competition and has sung principal roles with Seattle Opera, Cincinnati Opera, Palm Beach Opera, Chicago Opera Theater, Lyric Opera Cleveland, Eugene Opera, Amarillo Opera and many others. Favorite roles include Dorabella, Hansel, Rosina, Suzuki in Madama Butterfly, Ottavia in L’Incoronazione di Poppea and the title roles in Carmen and Cendrillon.

Ms. Mattox made her professional debut with Seattle Opera as Feodor in their acclaimed production of Boris Godunov. The Seattle Times said “…it was newcomer Sarah Elouise Mattox, in the ‘pants role’ of Boris’ son Feodor, who raised eyebrows all over the Opera House with her believable, lifelike acting and her well-schooled voice.” In Cleveland, the Beacon Journal called her “…a rich-toned mezzo-soprano who came to life as Dorabella.”

A sought-after concert soloist, Ms. Mattox has appeared several times with the Seattle Symphony, impressing the audience “…with sensitive singing, a warm, expressive voice and clear diction,” said the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. She has also appeared as a soloist with the Seattle Baroque Orchestra, the Sunriver Music Festival, the Northwest Chamber Chorus, the Eugene Concert Choir, the Northwest Sinfonietta, the Cascade Festival of Music and others. In 2007, she made her Carnegie Hall debut under the baton of Maestro John Rutter, and has since been invited back three times. Her first solo CD, ‘Copland and Cole’, with pianist Judith Cohen, is available through and features Copland’s Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson and a selection of Cole Porter’s lesser-known songs. Her new chamber music ensemble, TangleTown Trio, recently released their debut CD which features many of Mattox's own original compositions.
Her upcoming season includes appearances with Seattle Opera, the Northwest Sinfonietta and a NY appearance with TangleTown Trio. For a complete schedule please see the
