Sara Davis Buechner Residency


SARA DAVIS BUECHNER & THE APO 


"The APO's mission is to connect people with broader contemporary issues through music, making a difference in the community today that lasts for years. Sara Davis Buechner does that in spades," said Jason Miller, executive director of the APO. "She not only uplifts people with her technical prowess and unparalleled artistry, but she also inspires and empowers the diverse LGBTQIA+ community she is part of. We hope benefits from her performances and learns from what she has to say."


Noted for her musical command, cosmopolitan artistry, and visionary independence, Buechner has been lauded as one of the most original concert pianists of our time. After a year with no live performances due to COVID-19, the APO selected Buechner as their first guest artist of the new season as a gift to the Northwest Arkansas community and to honor diverse experiences by bringing timely issues forward through music.


Buechner is a world-renowned pianist and proud transgender woman who has performed in every state and province of North America as a recitalist, chamber musician and soloist.
