Sharon is the First Prize Winner of the Cincinnati Camerata Composition Competition. Her winning piece, "The Third Mother/Mothers' Lament" is an A Cappella work, which honors the life of the late journalist, Daniel Pearl. The piece was originally premiered by the Los Angeles Master Chorale, under the direction of Maestro Grant Gershon. The work will be performed by the Cincinnati Camerata on May 5th, 2007. "The jury reviewed 41 works. After two rounds "The Third Mother/Mothers' Lament" stood out, and was the clear winner in the third. We especially liked the choral writing, the text and the timely topic. The language... and the fact that the Hebrew underlay is phonetic, and easily accessible to an American chorus... were other plusses"… Richard Arnet, Organizer and Facilitator of the Composition Competition.

  • On June 13th, Director Gloria Greenfield presented the Los Angeles premier of the film UNMASKED- JUDEOPHOBIA, scored by Sharon. The film deals with the roots of anti-Semitism in the Christian and Islamic worlds and its effect on humanity. The moving and at times terrifying score accompanies the film and brings about an added dimension to this important and difficult issue. Ms. Greenfield has already asked Sharon to compose the music for her next film as well. www.unmaskedthemovie.com
  • Sharon's acclaimed piece, Translucent Rock, has been chosen to be performed by the Culver City Symphony Orchestra. The piece, commissioned by The Israeli Chamber Orchestra is originally written for chamber orchestra and was re- orchestrated for a full symphony orchestra by Sharon for the concert, which took place on 1/29/2011a. The historic concert was dedicated solely to Women Composers, many of them living and creating new music today.
