Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia

Meet Sage Mae

Sage performs on Show 433.

Sage Mae Lima-Jeffries (cello), 16, hails from Atlanta, Georgia, and in addition to being a cellist, she is a singer/songwriter and visual artist. She’s been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil and singing ever since she could talk. At the age of 11, Sage started playing the cello with the Atlanta Music Project. She loves the cello because of its beautiful range of sound: that it can hit the high notes of a violin and the deep rich notes of a double bass. She enjoys being a part of the Atlanta Music Project’s (AMP’s) Senior Youth Choir, and their Senior Youth Orchestra as principal cellist. She currently studies with Ismail Akbar. In 2022 she participated in the Southern Star Music Festival, where she won Gold Standard and the Grand Champion award with the AMP Senior Youth Choir and Silver Standard with the AMP Senior Youth Orchestra. That same year she performed at the Georgia ACDA fall conference with the AMP Senior Youth Choir. Sage was also featured in an episode of Monica Pearson One on One as a part of AMP’s Senior Youth Choir and Orchestra in December of last year. In 2020, Sage had the honor of participating in the GMEA All State Orchestra conducted by nationally recognized composer Richard Meyer. She enjoys performing in and around Atlanta, and has performed in places such as the Mercedes Benz Stadium, Spivey Hall, Plaza Theatre, and has even been on live TV. Outside of music she enjoys cooking, biking, sewing, and crocheting.
