A curiosity in the cultural background behind the music she plays led Sarah Stone to baroque cello and viola da gamba. This season, Sarah performs around the country with Seraphic Fire, Washington National Cathedral, House of Time, Repast Baroque, Trinity Baroque Orchestra, and New York Baroque Incorporated. She returns to Montreal’s Bourgie Concert Hall with Trinity Wall Street to perform Bach Cantatas, and bringing early music into the classroom, she will play in over 60 New York City and Connecticut public schools this year through the outreach program of The American Classical Orchestra. Recent seasons have included performances of Handel's Radamisto with Opera Lafayette and Vivaldi Double Cello Concerto on tour with Apollo's Fire. During the summer months, Sarah is a part of Teatro Nuovo, performing unconducted bel canto operas, and travels to Portland, Maine, where she makes music in unconventional venues as a part of The Portland Bach Experience.
Sarah thinks bringing early music to unexpected places is important; she is an active board member of Bitterroot Baroque, a presenting organization in Hamilton, Montana that brings in period ensembles and musicians to perform and work with locals in early music workshops. In her home-base of Long Island City, Queens, she curates a free monthly series, Communitea Chamber Music. Sarah holds a Masters in Historical Performance from the Juilliard School, a Masters from San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and a Bachelors of Music from Rice University.
