Woodman Strings

A classical duo with a rich repertoire drawn mostly from the Baroque and Classical periods, with music from both before and after to round out the mix.

Sarah Wilbur-Woodman began her studies on violin at age 7 and viola at 10 years old. She studied privately with Barbara Springer and Otto Joachim before being admitted to the Concervatoire de Musiqe de Montreal with Robert Verebes (MSO assistant solo) in 1980. She also had the priviledge of studying with TSO principal, Osher Green at Les Jeunesses Musicales d'Orford and privately with Leslie Malowany (MSO principal).

She has played as an orchestral and chamber musician from coast to coast, including principal viola positions with Les Jeunes Virtuoses de Montreal (1995-1996)and the Prince George Symphony (1989-1995) and plays frequently with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and local chamber groups.

As a teacher, she has extensive experience with all ages and levels on both violin and viola, including ten years with the EPSB strings program. Her busy private studio, conducting string orchestras, and her two musical daughters keep her well occupied. Sarah joined the Alberta College Conservatory of Music in 2009

Lessons with ESO cellists Anna Hyder, then Tim Khaner prepared him for post-secondary studies with Claude Kenneson.
