She is the founder of a unique trio of Baroque oboists, Sarabande, whose three members (who all happen to be named Sarah) play a variety of historical double reed instruments. She has performed with the early music ensembles Baltimore Pro Musica Rara, The Bach Ensemble, and the Philadelphia Classical Symphony, and with the Smithsonian Chamber Orchestra of Washington, D.C.

With these ensembles, she has performed at several summer music festivals worldwide. She joined the chamber group Ensemble Galilei in its second incarnation. This group is an unusual grouping of traditional and classical instruments that finds compatible ways to apply Celtic folk music practice with Baroque and Renaissance style. With Ensemble Galilei (named for the composer father of famous astronomer Galileo Galilei) she plays oboe, recorders, and pennywhistle. Read less
