Alumni Spotlight: Sara Chiego (BM '81)

Sara Chiego was born in Lahore, West Pakistan, where her parents were teaching missionaries. A transfer student from Northwestern University, she was attracted to the music background and high academic level of the professors at the U of M Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music. Sara says, "I have fond memories of small music history classes, drinking tea and discussing nuemes and Josquin with Dr. Carol Fruchtman.  I was also given the opportunity at the University of Memphis to perform a concerto with the University Orchestra, which was a once in a life time experience!"

Since then, she received her Master of Music in Performance from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. She has played with the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, the Dayton Symphony, and the Taft Chamber Players. During the summers she has taught and performed at the Allegheny Summer Music Festival in Pennsylvania and the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Michigan.
