Biography | Sara DeCorso

Sara DeCorso

Violinist Sara DeCorso began her musical studies in her hometown of Fairbanks, Alaska with Dr. Kathleen Butler-Hopkins, received her Bachelor's degree from the Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio as a student of Marilyn McDonald, and completed her Master's and Doctoral degrees at Stony Brook University in New York under the tutelage of Mitchell Stern.
After having worked with early music specialists such as Arthur Haas, Phoebe Carrai, and Manfred Kraemer, she sought to more fully immerse herself in historical performance, and in 2002 was awarded a grant from the Frank Huntington Beebe Fund of Boston to pursue baroque violin studies with Enrico Gatti at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Den Haag.

Since that time she worked with a variety of period instrument orchestras and chamber ensembles, including Van Swieten Society, Musica ad Rhenum, B’Rock, Anima Eterna, Les Musiciens du Louvre, Apollo Ensemble, The Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century, Festspielorchester Göttingen, and Collegium Musicum Den Haag.
