Hailed by the Santa Barbara News-Press as a "strong and focused" flutist, Abigail Sten Graham has enjoyed an active music career for nearly two decades. Graham has been a member of several California orchestras, including the North State Symphony, the Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra, and the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra in Los Angeles. She was a flutist with Santa Barbara’s Celtic fusion ensemble Dannsair, and she has served as vice president of the San Francisco Flute Society.

 

Graham had the honor of performing at Carnegie Hall in 2017 as a first-place winner of the American Protégé International Woodwinds and Brass Competition. She was a winner of the National Flute Association’s 2018 Convention Performers Competition, and a two-time award-winner of the Rio Hondo Young Artist Competition.

 

In demand as a teacher, Abigail manages a large virtual flute studio of San Francisco Bay Area students, along with flute and piano students in western Pennsylvania. She also coaches young flutists for school music programs in the Butler area. Previously, Graham was Lead Artist-in-Residence for the San Mateo-Foster City School District, where she worked closely with more than 1,000 flute students at the district’s 16 elementary schools.

 

A Western Pennsylvania native, Abigail can be found performing locally as a flutist with the North Country Session Players. She also provides piano accompaniment services to Pittsburgh area churches and community organizations.

Graham holds a master's degree in flute performance from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She earned her bachelor's degree from the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music. She owes much gratitude to her teachers Sharon Perschke, Beatrice Rentsch, George Pope, Alberto Almarza, and Jill Felber.

 

Abigail is a wife and a mom to two young girls. She is passionate about personal fitness and home learning. When not making music, she loves reading nonfiction and organizing things.
