Sarah Moon, Flute
Toronto flutist Sarah Moon is a vibrant performer with brilliant technique and gorgeous tone. As an educator, she currently teaches at Queen's University. Prior to her appointment, she served as Principal Flute with Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra and as Instructor of Flute at the University of Saskatchewan for two years. She has also performed as an acting Principal Flute with Symphony Nova Scotia, and Orquesta Filarmónica de Jalisco.
Sarah's musical journey began as the daughter of a piano teacher in Seoul, Korea. She started playing the piano at age 3, picking up the flute at age 10 as a protest to the rigorous piano practice routine. Two years later at age 12, she made her solo debut with the Korean Symphony Orchestra. Her family relocated to Toronto when she was a teenager, and she made her Canadian debut as a soloist with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at 19. Sarah earned her Bachelor's degree from Carnegie Mellon University, and Master's degree in Contemporary Performance at the Manhattan School of Music. She is thrilled to join the Blythwood Winds to continue the legacy of Canadian woodwind playing.
