Sasha’s eclectic education in acoustics began as a child growing up in the City of Light. On the cobblestoned streets of Paris, she absorbed the vibrato of clinking café cups and lovers’ farewell kisses against the backdrop of a lone, lilting accordion. Though young, she could already sense a captivating Je ne sais quoi about it all.

By age eleven, now living in her native New York, the dramatic soprano-within was ready to emerge. Attending her first opera, Verdi’s La Traviata, “I was overwhelmed, I couldn’t breathe,” she recalls, “I needed to know it.” After a school choir director recognized the young girl’s precocious talent, Sasha spent her teen years performing arias atop church pulpits and giving recitals in Park Avenue living rooms.

Tonight, Sasha Lazard joins Kenneth Hieber LIVE on 'One Voice from Africa ... to the World'  for what can only be described as an evening into a 'Musical Journey of Fantasy'.
