About Sharon Ruchman

Sharon graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music with a Bachelor of Music degree in education and earned her Master of Music degree at the Yale School of Music. She was a soloist in the “Mozart Requiem” with the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, and in the summer of 2006, she returned to Yale to study composition privately with Orianna Webb. In 2009, one of her cello and piano pieces was selected by the National Composers Association to be played in San Francisco. She released her first chamber music CD, “Sharon Ruchman Chamber Music.”

Since then, Sharon has released a new album each year and performed her original compositions at prestigious venues such as The Federation of Jewish Communities of Western Connecticut at Heritage Village in Southbury, CT. Her pieces have been aired on many radio stations world-wide, including CJPX in Montreal in the “Hits” category, WSCL in Salisbury, MD, and KVOD in Denver, CO.
