From Janis: I’ve worked with Sarah on just one project, and it isn’t nearly enough. The variety of music she creates really amazes me. Her latest project, Portraits of Wisdom”, is a recording and tour of original songs about Women in STEM. Each composition celebrates notable women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics who, throughout the ages, have broken down barriers and achieved great things. A true extension of Sarah’s commitment to empower women, as well as her passion to preserve jazz music, though she steps out of her comfort zone with this. For more information go here

(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
