Both a fiddler and a classical violinist, Sedra Bistodeau has performed with the Minnesota Youth Symphony for a number of years, won the Minnesota State Fair talent contest at 14 and has been touring the country most of her life competing in Bluegrass fiddle competitions.

Here, we follow Bistadeau to the University of Minnesota’s Bravo! summer string and keyboard institute where she further hones her skills under renowned soloist, chamber musician and pedagogue Sally O’Reilly.
