Based in California, Sandrine has a proven track record of success bringing stories from talented directors to life, most notably the French play Blanc, which was performed over 25 times in France and Switzerland. Other notable experience includes writing and conducting orchestra music for animated film Star Bard, for which she won Best Orchestration at the 17th Garden State Film Festival, feature films such as Sailing Through Life and Aylesbury Estate, and short films such as the award-winning Kneeling Sheep. Sandrine’s work has been recognized with a nomination at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards. Recent honors also include a showcase of her work for full orchestra, Aurore Boréale, in Venice, for which she also received a Global Music Award, and a selection to attend the SESAC Workshop with composer John Swihart (How I Met Your Mother).


Sandrine is both exceptionally versatile—able to wield both full orchestra and a sparse piano and cello duo to devastating effect—and stylistically distinct, due to both her European classical piano training started at age 4 and American influences. She holds a Master of Music diploma from the prestigious Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program and has studied orchestration at Stanford University. She holds a Bachelor of Music from Switzerland’s Conservatory of Lausanne.
