The Main Squeeze Orchestra

Sarah Starpoli

Sarah Starpoli is relatively new to the accordion, though thoroughly convinced they were separated at birth. A singer/songwriter/performance artist/brunch lover, she likes to compose witty songs about things like food, gossip, boys and wrath. An office goddess by day, Sarah holds a fancy schmancy degree in Experimental Performance and can’t decide whether she wants to be a rockstar, a singing cashier, a writer of socially-relevant musical theater, or all of the above.
