Garofalo graduated with a bachelor’s degree in music in violin performance from Duquesne University, where she studied under Christopher Wu of the Pittsburgh Symphony. She has since continued private studies with other acclaimed teachers, including David Kim of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Jeremy Black of the Pittsburgh Symphony.

She has also worked for summer music festivals including Music Academy International in northern Italy and Endless Mountain Music Festival in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania.
Along with her classical music background, Garofalo also enjoys recording, collaborating and performing with various locally- and internationally-acclaimed rock and pop artists in addition to her improvisational trio Pariah Dog, which she helped cofound.
Garofalo is trained as a teacher in the Suzuki Method and since 2010, she has held a private studio of students at her home as well as at various schools.
Her performance at Saint Vincent will take place in the College’s recently opened Verostko Center for the Arts gallery in the Dale P. Latimer Library.
