Corinna grew up playing classical music, but fell in love with folk music 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 attended Michigan State University where she studied violin with Dmitri Berlinsky, was mentored by pedagogue Bob Phillips, and was a Featherstone Award recipient, earning her degree in Music Education with high honors. She then spent a year teaching violin and improvisation at the Mandeville Conservatory in Singapore. Since 2013, Corinna has been touring extensively with Adam Ezra Group, playing over 200 shows each year & releasing six albums together to date. She is also certified and licensed as an educator in Massachusetts.
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 currently active with Adam Ezra Group’s nonprofit organization Rallysound as well as the Waltham Mutual Aid Network.
Corinna has performed and taught in 42 states & six countries. She maintains a small private studio of enthusiastic learners, loves the opportunity to visit schools for workshops when possible, and is passionate about helping students find their creative voices.
