Sarah started learning about music as a child from her mother, who played the piano. She was first introduced to the flute at age 10, and performed with her church choir and school ensembles. Sarah also competed in the New York State School Music Association’s annual competition.
Sarah earned a BA in Music Performance from Western Connecticut State University. She is a certified Kindermusik Educator, and has been an instructor at Friends School of Wilmington for the past nine years. She teaches private lessons in flute, piano, violin, and guitar.
She has been a member of the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra for the last five years. When asked why she enjoys playing in the WSO, she says, “Having the opportunity to perform with outstanding musicians, such as Linda Lavin, Edwin McCain, and the band Sister Hazel have been a highlight in my career. Getting to play under Dr. Errante’s direction is a real joy. His deep understanding of music and calm demeanor make performing with the symphony exciting.”
Sarah is also a member of the newly formed Wilmington Symphonic Winds, and performs locally with theater groups. Earlier this spring, Sarah performed at the Cameron Art Museum for the Literary Theatre “Twelfth Night” production. The Enter/Exeunt Shakespeare reading series featured local professional actors and musicians.
When not playing music, Sarah loves outdoor activities, exercise, and spending time with her boyfriend, Jason and her dog, Belle.
