Music Library Supervisor

Newman Center for the Performing Arts, Room 440

Sarah Perske has worked at the Bonfils-Stanton Music Library since 2015, and holds degrees in guitar performance (BM 2012) and composition (MM 2016) from the University of Denver's Lamont School of Music. A prolific and versatile composer, Sarah is frequently sought out by performers who share her interests in expanding the boundaries of traditional music-making through the integration of performance art and cross-disciplinary collaboration. Sarah is the recipient of several awards and recognitions for her work as a composer, and her music has been premiered by the Playground Ensemble, the Lamont Symphony Orchestra, the Keith/Larson Duo, and classical guitarist Laura Husbands, among many others. When not composing or assisting library patrons, Sarah enjoys reading classic literature, promoting new music in the Denver area as a member of Lamon't own Nebula Ensemble, and spending time with other people's cats.
