Sarah Clements is a featured piano soloist for Seriously Fun, the Manassas Symphony's Concert on March 2, 2024. Along with colleague pianist Mary Garrahan, she is playing Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals.
Sarah Clements is a pianist and piano teacher in Northern Virginia. She has recently returned to school to pursue a BM in Piano Performance at George Mason University, after having graduated from the University of Virginia with a BA in Studio Art in 2014. While at UVA she performed as a pianist and percussionist in the Symphonic Band, Cavalier Marching Band, Percussion Ensemble, and the Charlottesville Symphony Orchestra, as well as accompanying student opera ensembles.
Sarah is a member of the MSO, where she usually performs as a percussionist. She also performs regularly as a member of the pit orchestra for Pied Piper Theatre, and has had the honor to be an orchestra member and rehearsal accompanist the past two summers for the Prince William Little Theatre and Manassas Symphony Orchestra collaborative productions of The Sound of Music and Oliver!
She is absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to perform as a pianist with an orchestra, especially one that she knows and loves as much as the MSO. She would like to express her deepest thanks to any and every person she has worked and performed with over the years, but especially to her usual sectionmates - Carlos, Scott, Matt, and Tim - for making the percussion section a hard place to leave, even just for one concert; to Veronica Miller, for giving her the chance to play and grow as a pianist; to Jim Villani, for believing in her enough to ask her to play for this concert; and to Greg Carr, for always coming to her shows and for helping her realize what music really means to her.
