Ashley Rewolinski graduated Summa cum Laude from North Park University with a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance and received her Master of Music in Violin Performance from Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts. She always demonstrated a passion for performance (violin), paper (sheet music), and pencils (Blackwing, of course).
She has appeared as a frequent soloist with the North Park University Symphony where she held the concertmaster chair for four years. Her solo performances with the NPU Symphony included: Otoño Porteno from Piazzolla's Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, Bach's Double Concerto for Violin and Oboe with Naomi Bensdorf-Frisch, and Louis Spohr's Violin Concerto no. 8 in a minor. She has also appeared as a soloist with the North Park Chamber Soloists performing numerous Vivaldi concerti including Summer from the Four Seasons, and the Concerto for Three Violins where she collaborated with David Yonan.
Ashley can be seen performing regularly with the symphonies of Kenosha, Racine, Fox Valley (Wisconsin), and Festival City, as well as the Wisconsin Philharmonic. Not afraid to step out of the classical genre and into the flames (literally!), she has performed with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and the band, Disturbed. When she is not performing, she works behind the scenes as Personnel Manager of regional orchestras in Southeastern Wisconsin and Music Librarian for the Wisconsin Philharmonic. In 2019, she attended the Major Orchestra Librarian's Annual Conference in Atlanta, where the Wisconsin Philharmonic was voted in as a member of the organization. In her spare time, she is a conductor, and holds the position of Music Director for two orchestras: the Milwaukee School of Engineering Orchestra and the orchestras of Greater Milwaukee El Sistema.
During the summer, she loves to travel and learn: she has been an active participant of numerous Starling-DeLay Symposia on Violin Studies at the Juilliard School, an opera orchestra fellow with the Miami Music Festival, and loves attending MOLA conferences with her librarian colleagues. Ashley will spend this summer as a Music Library Fellow at Tanglewood.
