Sacred Stage

Sacred Stage is the website of Jacqui Rutten – composer, singer, multi-instrumentalist and creative artist. I compose with pen and paper mainly outdoors, to be part of nature, and concerts are unamplified, to be more like nature, from chant to Improvisations as Nature. We welcome other artists to kindly share their gifts, often for charity.

“Compositions sincerely crafted, they hold together in a very personal way.”

-Jon Rose ABC AdLIb
