Alicia Storin began playing cello at the age of 10 with the public school music program in her hometown of Mequon, WI, and continued her studies through high school with Greg Mathews of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.
She is a proud alumna of MYSO, spending six formative years from Sinfonia through Senior Symphony, and was fortunate enough to go on three tours, with incredibly fond memories of the Mediterranean Odyssey of 1997.
Alicia earned a Bachelor’s of Music Degree from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, and her Master’s of Music from the Cleveland Institute of Music in 2007, where she studied with Stephen Geber. Upon her return to Milwaukee, Alicia served as cellist in the Leonard Sorkin International Institute of Chamber Music at UW-Milwaukee, where she graduated with a performance certificate under Stefan Kartman in 2013.
As a founding member of local ensemble Cadance Collective, Alicia works with musicians and dancers to create collaborative performance pieces using innovative musical scores and original choreography. Alicia has also performed at both the Milwaukee Repertory Theater and American Players Theatre as the cellist/Muse in ‘An Iliad,’ opposite Wisconsin favorite, actor James DeVita. Storin also frequently solos with Camerata Milwaukee, a local baroque ensemble with which she is a core member.
An avid chamber musician, in addition the the wind group The Monarch Ensemble, Alicia is also a member of the Riso Quartet, a piano quartet made up of Milwaukee musicians she met through the Leonard Sorkin International Institute of Chamber Music at UWM.
Currently, Alicia and composer Sean Neukom are in the post-production stages of several recording projects for NeuKraft Records, based in Pittsburgh, PA.
