MUSIC/SCENE Creator, Head Director Sara Judge is a San Francisco based Songwriter and Theater Artist. Combining two art forms that rarely have an opportunity to collaborate, she has been a leader in supporting and directing new work in Philadelphia and San Francisco for the past 15 years. In addition to producing two original runs of MUSIC/SCENE at PianoFight, Sara recently directed a full-length reading for the SF Olympians Festival and a short opera for the SF 48 Hour Opera Festival. Her original music has been described as capturing the energy of dub hall reggae and hip-hop, but with the more intimate exchange of acoustic guitar and strings. «Really terrific! And what a voice. Of all the ladies who can belt it out--Florence + the Machine, Natalie Merchant, Neko Case and Brandi Carlile--Judge's work keeps right up with them.» — Kara Swisher, Co-Producer, and Co-Host of The Wall Street Journal's, D: All Things Digital. sarajudge.com
