Sarah Robinson is a founding member of Helix Collective, a Los Angeles-based band that performs a high-energy, out-of-the-box mix of world, classical and rock n' roll.  Helix is at home in nightclubs and on the concert stage from a residency at the venerable Silverlake Lounge to performances for the West Michigan and Pacific Symphonies. Helix Collective records as a film scoring ensemble and hosts live score-to-screen film events. Helix released two critically acclaimed albums - All In and World Dance Club.


Sarah has served as co-director of Classical Revolution: L.A. since its inception in 2011. The group makes "chamber music cozy comfy in bars, clubs, coffee shops" and more "unexpected hangouts" (L.A. Weekly). Mark Swed of the L.A. Times called it an "addictive new series," that can make chamber music "startlingly subversive."  Sarah recently published Clubbing for Classical Musicians, a guide to presenting music in alternative venues which David Cutler, author of the Savvy Musician, called “enlightening, instructional, and inspiring.”


Sarah performs frequently as a chamber, orchestral and recording musician in Los Angeles. She can be heard on the soundtracks to the films Pressure Man, Monroe, Driving Thought, Toxic Temptation and Bandit. Sarah served as Principal Flute with the Battle Creek Symphony Orchestra and section flute with the Adrian Symphony. She has performed on flute, piccolo and alto flute with the West Michigan, Traverse City, Jackson and Long Bay Symphonies, the South Carolina Philharmonic, and Symphony Orchestra Augusta, as well as with the Los Angeles Conducting Workshop Orchestra.


As an educator, Dr. Robinson has taught chamber music and flute in the U.S. and England as well as courses in music literature and introduction to music.  She holds degrees in flute performance from the Royal Northern College of Music, the Chicago College of Performing Arts, the University of Illinois and the University of South Carolina.
