Claiming her first radio show from 3-6 am, Sara Louise Soltau paid her dues as a freshman DJ at WXYC Chapel Hill. She holds a Masters degree in Violin Performance, yet has always pursued other interests such as women’s prison music, creative education, nature and music, improvisation, and homemade instruments. Although eclectic, her explorations have always supported her larger goal to use music for education and community building. She finds classical music captures a unique story, experience, and history, which she looks forward to sharing in her hometown of Louisville, KY.
