About Composer Sarah Stiles

A native of Sonoma County, California, composer Sarah Stiles began her musical endeavors at a very young age as a classical pianist. Stiles’ ambitions remained with the piano until she discovered the innovative music of the 20th century, at which point she was spurred to also compose. Primarily self-taught, Stiles continued to compose solo while studying at the University of California, Berkeley, where she received a B.A. in Music.

In May 2008, Stiles received a Master’s of Music in Composition from the San Francisco Conservatory. Performances of Stiles’ oeuvre include premieres with San Francisco Composers’ Circle, the New Keys Concert Series, the New Music Ensemble of the San Francisco Conservatory, the Cornelius Cardew Choir, the Temescal Experiment, the Outsound Series at the Luggage Store Gallery, and self-produced concerts. Stiles enjoys performing with the Cornelius Cardew Choir, an avant-garde ensemble of composer-performer improvisers. Stiles held an Artist in Residence position at SOTA (San Francisco School of the Arts) where she taught music theory and musicianship. Currently she teaches private lessons in composition, theory, musicianship, and piano around the Bay Area.

More about the Cornelius Cardew Choir

For my friends who may be reading this post, please note that although I usually perform with the Cornelius Cardew Choir, I regret that I probably won’t be able to join the group at this concert, due to a seasonal sore throat. I strongly encourage any of you to attend, as it will be a unique musical event, and I’m sure you will enjoy it!
