A passionate advocate for both early and new music, Zoe Sorrell is an adventurous performer of historical and modern flutes. She has given performances on three continents, including new music concerts at Constellation Chicago and the Pittsburgh Festival of New Music; pre-Olympic ceremonies in Beijing, China; open mic nights in Staffordshire, England; and more traditional appearances with the Opera Theater of Pittsburgh and Chatham Baroque.
Sorrell appears most frequently as the flutist for NAT 28, a contemporary music ensemble she founded and now directs. NAT 28 is known internationally as the hosts of the annual Pittsburgh Composers' Project.
As an educator, Sorrell maintains an active flute studio, both privately and at Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA. Her students frequently participate in events such as Make Music Day Pittsburgh and compete in state-wide competitions.
Sorrell holds Bachelor's Degrees in flute performance and English literature from Oberlin College and Conservatory, where she studied flutes with Michel Debost and Michael Lynn, and a Master's Degree in flute performance from Carnegie Mellon University, where she played under the tutelage of Alberto Almarza, Jeanne Baxtresser, Lorna McGhee, and Stephen Schultz.
"Zoe Sorrell pours her heart and soul into these amazing young flutists."
