Stephanie Corwin


Stephanie Corwin enjoys performing and teaching music of the past four centuries on modern and historical bassoons. Her vocation has taken her throughout the US and abroad, simultaneously satisfying her love for travel and her desire for connecting with people on and off the stage. Highlights include solo appearances at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, and concerts with prominent ensembles across North America, including Tafelmusik, the American Classical Orchestra, Piffaro, and Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra.

Stephanie is the inaugural winner of the Meg Quigley Vivaldi Bassoon Competition and has received prizes at the Fischoff, Coleman, and Yellow Springs chamber music competitions. After graduating from Davidson College, she earned her MM from Yale University and DMA from Stony Brook University, studying with Frank Morelli at both institutions. Intrigued by the contextualized approach of historical performance practice, she completed a Performer Diploma in historical bassoons at Indiana University under the direction of Michael McCraw. Stephanie has served on faculty at the University of Virginia, the Chamber Music Conference, Amherst Early Music Festival, and the Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute.
