Corinna grew up playing classical music, but began exploring other styles as well as a teenager. At age 18 she was cast as the only American in the internationally touring fiddle-pop sensation Barrage, with whom she performed for two years.
Corinna then attended Michigan State University where she studied violin with Dmitri Berlinsky, earning her degree and certification in Music Education with mentorship by pedagogue Bob Phillips. After a year teaching at the Mandeville Conservatory in Singapore, Corinna returned to the United States and has been touring extensively with Adam Ezra Group since 2013, playing over 200 shows each year & releasing six albums together to date.
In addition to her performing career, in 2022 Corinna joined the D'addario family as a sponsored clinician under the Strings 101 outreach program funded by D'addario Orchestral. Through this program she is able to provide a number of free clinics to deserving school string programs throughout the United States each year. Corinna's educational philosophy is based in the recognition that ALL children are creative, and that creative expression is an essential and impactful part of the human experience.

To date, Corinna has performed and taught in 44 states & nine countries. A passionate volunteer, Corinna and four string-playing friends set a world record playing their instruments at the summit of the 19,341ft Mt. Kilimanjaro; their expedition raised funds for Tanzania's Kilimahewa Educational Centre. She has also helped over 200 US concertgoers register to vote, and is active with Adam Ezra Group’s nonprofit organization Rallysound as well as the Waltham Mutual Aid Network.
