Ashley Rewolinski is an acoustic and electric violinist based out of the greater Milwaukee and Chicago areas. She performs regularly with national touring acts in arenas across the midwest with artists such as Josh Groban, Il Volo, and Michael Bublé. Not afraid to step out of the classical genre and into the flames (literally!), she performs in the string section for Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and has also performed with Disturbed. Recent collaborations include performances with Jeff Lake and the Cellophane Flowers (The Fest for Beatles Fans, Chicago 2023), and performing in an electric string quartet with Rumour Has It: a tribute to the music of Adele.
Ashley has quickly become a highly sought after electric violinist, performing for weddings, corporate, and other private events. She proudly plays a custom made 5 string 3Dvarius and loves exploring new repertoire on this unique instrument. Her electric violin has led her to electrifying performances for notable clients including: Brunello Cucinelli, Kohler 150, the National Association for Food Safety & Quality, NYE MKE, among others.
Passionate about arts administration, she serves on the Board of Directors for the Association of Wisconsin Symphony Orchestras. Notable administrative accomplishments include a Tanglewood Fellowship, hosting the 2023 AWSO Workshop and serving as the Lake Geneva Symphony Orchestra’s Executive Director – the first in the orchestra’s history. In October 2022, she was honored for her work as a violinist and arts administrator by Kettle Moraine High School (her alma mater) as a Trailblazer Hall of Fame Inductee.
Ashley earned her Bachelor of Music degree in Violin Performance Summa cum Laude from North Park University, and her Master of Music in Violin Performance from Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts. She has participated in the 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 Starling-DeLay Violin Symposia on Violin Studies at the Juilliard School.
