Sarah Plum, violin

Friday, April 7 @ 8 pm



Violinist Sarah Plum began her performing career by winning first prize at the International Stulberg Competition in 1984. Her performances have been praised as “consistently stunning with works that demanded conventional virtuosity but also great skill in unconventional techniques” (Third Coast) and “extraordinary, meaningful and magnificent music” (Berliner Tageszeitung).

As a new music specialist, Plum has performed worldwide at festivals and venues such as Ars Musica (Brussels), Cite de Musique (Paris), Ankunft:Neue Musik (Berlin), Unruly Music (Milwaukee), Spectrum (New York), and The Luzern Festival, among others as a soloist and with noted ensembles. In the past three years alone, Plum has commissioned Sidney Corbett, Christopher Adler, Laurie Schwartz, Mari Kimura, Sidney Boquiren, Mari Takano, Charles Nichols, and Jeff Herriot to write pieces for her.  Plum’s collaborations with composers has led to projects such as her CD, Absconditus, music of Sidney Corbett for violin, called “a gem” by the American Record Guide.
