Sarah Pehrson

Board Member



Violin (Concertmaster)

Sarah started playing the violin at the age of 10. She is a graduate of Snow College, holding a Bachelor of Commercial Music with an emphasis on violin performance (part of the second graduating class of a newly-developed program). As a student she soloed with Kansas, Kurt Bestor, Nathan Pacheco, and many others. She is currently working on a Masters of Music Technology from Southern Utah University, expecting to graduate this summer. She has learned a great deal about recording, live sound, and the business of music from both degrees.

She currently plays for several groups, including:

  • Skyward Symphony (as founding member, Concertmaster, and board member)
  • New American Philharmonic (with her parents)
  • StringFX (Formerly Salt Lake String Quartet)
  • Black-Tie String Quartet and Booking Agency

Sarah is passionate about sharing the beauty of music and teaches private lessons to as many as 34 students every week! She strives to teach her students how music helps us learn about ourselves, and who we can become through hard work and dedication. She challenges each individual student to become the best they can be but also have fun while doing it.

Skyward Symphony proudly and frequently features her virtuoso talent!
