WE CELEBRATE THE ARTS
THE SAS EXPERIENCE
SAS Performing Arts Company and Studio Inc. founded by Musicologist and Conductor Stephen Scovasso and Patron of the Arts Alberto Benitez, offers the singing artist an invaluable gift during this season of pandemic; the opportunity of performing for an audience in a safe virtual format.
During this uncertain period of theater closures, Messrs. Scovasso and Benitez have invested their time, talent into creating and maintaining an enthusiastic digital audience with musical selections from opera, musical theater as well as sacred music.
My fourteen years singing leading Mezzo-Soprano roles at the Metropolitan Opera were seen by an audience of a few thousand opera enthusiasts. The SAS Performing Arts Company has the possibility of reaching an audience of millions of music lovers around the world through their Internet performances.
It has been my pleasure to participate in these marvelous music events with colleagues on the precipice of major careers as well as remarkably talented and seasoned stars who have had the chance to sing new and unusual repertoire. I salute the SAS Performing Arts Company which promotes musical excellence in vocal performance and serves as a priceless asset to the community of singing artists.

I worked with SAS Opera on Puccini’s Io Trittico, a tremendous undertaking for a small company, and I was very taken with not only the artistic interpretation, but also Steve’s knowledge of, and reverence to the score. Steve, is one of the kindest men in the business, and he intentionally elevates anyone who is lucky enough to collaborate with him. Bravo, SAS!

I have now worked with SAS Concert Opera twice and I hope to again and again! Maestro Scovasso not only brings together casts of incredible artists, but is also a wonderful and giving conductor. He is incredibly supportive of his singers both on and offstage. He wants the absolute best for everyone and generously gives his all to ensure their success. He is a true gem in the industry and I feel so fortunate that he gave me a shot. Though performed in concert, the passion brought to the SAS stage makes the performances so much more. I am very much looking forward to next season.

"Stephen Scovasso is an amazing director who gives constant encouragement to his actors and singers, and because of that their talent and confidence in their work grows. I can say that because that's what it's done for me. He also cultivates a safe, understanding and wonderful work environment for all of his actors, which is a blessing."
