Make your event a stand out by presenting techno-acoustic violin for an opener


Rachel is a classically trained musician having performed viola concertos with professional orchestras as well as violin solos as a rock arena artist.

Rachel was fortunate to train under scholarship at the New School of Music in Philadelphia. At just 22 she performed with the New York String Orchestra in a Christmas concert at Carnegie Hall. And later undertook a graduate assistantship to her teacher Kim Kashkashian at Bloomington University, Indiana USA.

 Since her arrival in Sydney in 2009 Rachel has performed as a freelance performer with Opera Australia, Philharmonia Choirs, Sydney Lyric Orchestra and Click Track Recording.

In recent years she has developed her own exciting presentation as a solo instrumentalist. With an electric violin and looping station, Rachel has repertoire suitable for a range of performing options, from a conference opener to support for speaking presentations.

Besides her ongoing performances as a soloist in concerts and events, Rachel will launch her own CD in 2020.
