Laura has been involved in music since the day she was born, having parents who are both professional musicians, and other family members as well. Her father is a concert pianist, conductor and professor of music, her mom sings, her aunts are opera singers, her brother is a violist & conductor, her sister-in-law a clarinetist, her son a saxophonist, and her daughter a percussionist. For her part, Laura started out as a violinist, pursuing her degree in performance. During college she made the switch to voice (though you can still occasionally find her pulling out her violin for chamber music get-togethers or to play in pit orchestras). Ms. Sage was also the Founder/Artistic Director of Lyric Opera of Los Angeles (LOLA), which eventually met it’s demise during the recession. LOLA enjoyed great successes during it’s time with many West Coast premiers including Cendrillon by Pauline Viardot, Goyescas by Granados, Manon Lescaut by D.F.E. Auber, Un Giorno di Regno by Verdi, Die Feen by Wagner, Der Vampyr by Heinrich Marschner, and other operas. Laura continues to perform, but finds her greatest professional joy in producing and running the administrative side of things. She works from home doing website development & design and graphic design. She is the proud mother of 2 teenagers who live in Los Angeles.
