Sarah Swersey has performed extensively in the United States and Europe as a solo, chamber, and orchestral musician. A native New Yorker, she spent seven years as principal flutist with the Orquesta Sinfonica de Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Spain. Since returning to the United States, she has performed at the Lincoln Center Festival, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and the Tanglewood Music Festival. In 1999, she began attending Music for People gatherings, and has since been augmenting her playing and teaching with improvisation.

Sarah is featured on three of MfP founder David Darling's recent recordings: "Balance," "Bliss," and "Open Window." And David is co-producer of Sarah's CD, "Nightingale," a collection of lullabies improvised on solo flute. "Nightingale" was lauded by Yoga Journal as "music that can wake you up to a peaceful place in the heart."

Sarah and three other MfP musicians founded Sasadama, an improvisational quartet performing in the Boston area. And, utilizing her training in Kripalu yoga, Sarah founded and facilitates "The Flexible Flutist," a yoga workshop for musicians. She also teaches MfP-style improvisation workshops that incorporate her classical music background and yoga training.

Sarah holds degrees from Oberlin College Conservatory and Yale University School of Music and is on the faculty of the Northampton Community Music Center.
