Saul Micah Nache
Saul M. Nache (he/him) is a music director, vocal director, voice teacher, performer, unapologetically gay and BIPOC, and lover of all musical styles! Saul seeks to lead rehearsals with joy, fun, energy, creativity, and all while getting the work done to an impeccable level! He also recognizes that not everyone learns in the same way, and seeks to connect the work to the indigenous spirit of play. Decolonizing the spaces he works in is also very important, and works to advocate for all participants to feel seen and heard. Saul enjoys running rehearsals, working with ensembles, working one on one, and leading the pit orchestra. Having taught music theater voice for several years at many collegiate institutions, Saul is able to construct the best sound for multiple different genres and styles of music with relative ease.
Saul recently served music director/arranger of THE BAR BILABO: A KURT WEILL CABARET in which he co-conceived the show with collaborators James Pierce III and Sheila Morgan with the Cherry Grove Theater Arts Project. He made his Off-Broadway debut as the music director for HIP HOP CINDERELLA with music composed by Rona Siddiqui at the New Victory Theater. Other shows Saul has music directed since being in NYC are readings of YBOR CITY, POST ROE MONOLOGUES, TELO, LAST COFFEE IN ROCKVILLE, and IT HAPPENED IN KEY WEST. He has also music directed the production of QUILLEN, a new musical based on Chilean myths with music by Pablo Concha and book and lyrics by Jamie Buxton, and was the associate music director for a workshop of CATS with the Perelman Performing Arts Center under Darryl Archibald as music director. In concert, Saul has served as the associate music director for AZUL, a new bilingual musical with music by Jacinta Clusellas at 54 Below, and as the music director/arranger/vocal arranger for EROS: A NIGHT OF PASSION WITH IANNE AND THE BADDIES at Joe’s Pub. Other shows as music director have been Mr. Burns, a post-electric play, Xanadu, Avenue Q, The Life, Pippin, Big River, 9 to 5: The Musical, Violet, Big Fish, and Dames at Sea.
Saul has a Master of Music in Voice Performance and Literature from the University of Illinois, and a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance from Western Illinois University. Having been involved in singing all his life, Saul also studied piano for 12 years. As an educator, Saul always fosters an open dialogue to make sure that students feel comfortable, seen, and heard. He also loves fitness, running, knitting (#knitsbysaul), and all things furry!
