Sarah Ewins


Sarah began playing the violin at the age of ten. She graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1989, and continued her post-graduate studies with David Takeno and Grigory Zhislin.

As well as recording for radio and television, Sarah has given numerous recitals and concerto performances both in this country and abroad. In 1990 Sarah joined Sir Yehudi Menuhin in a performance of Bach’s Three Violin concerto at the Royal Festival Hall. In 2002 Sarah joined the Halle Orchestra as Associate Leader and has appeared as Guest Leader with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Manchester Camerata.

She is Assistant Leader of the English Sinfonia with whom she recently recorded Holst’s Double Violin Concerto. Passionate about chamber music, she is a founder member of the recently-formed and much-acclaimed Halle Soloists and also very much enjoys the work she does with the Education department at the Halle and as violin tutor for the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.
