Ms. Mattox made her professional debut with Seattle Opera as Feodor in their acclaimed production of Boris Godunov. The Seattle Times said “…it was newcomer Sarah Elouise Mattox, in the ‘pants role’ of Boris’ son Feodor, who raised eyebrows all over the Opera House with her believable, lifelike acting and her well-schooled voice.” In Cleveland, the Beacon Journal called her “…a rich-toned mezzo-soprano who came to life as Dorabella.”
A sought-after concert soloist, Ms. Mattox appeared several times with the Seattle Symphony, impressing the audience “…with sensitive singing, a warm, expressive voice and clear diction,” said Seattle Post-Intelligencer. She also appeared as a soloist with the Portland Chamber Orchestra, Sunriver Music Festival, Northwest Chamber Chorus, Eugene Concert Choir, Northwest Sinfonietta, Cascade Festival of Music and others. Her first solo CD, ‘Copland and Cole’, with pianist Judith Cohen, is available through amazon.com and features Copland’s Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson and an entertaining selection of Cole Porter’s less known songs.
