Ms. Daneshpour’s performances have earned high accolades of audiences and critics alike. The Baltimore Sun stated that Sara “delivered a powerhouse account of Tchaikovsky’s Concerto No.1 producing enough tone for two pianists in the process.” New York Concert Review wrote, “she lavished color on oft-neglected line, illuminated subtle beauties, and raged through the storms, always with stunning polish.”
Highlights of past seasons included performances with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Gerard Schwarz in Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor, Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Maestro George Hanson, and with Maestro Peter Bay at the Britt Festival in Jacksonville, Oregon.
She studied under the direction of Leon Fleisher at the Curtis Institute of Music, Dr. Yoheved Kaplinsky at the Juilliard School, and Dr. Oleg Volkov. Her studies have continued under Sergei Babayan at the Cleveland Institute of Music since 2015.
