Rachel Friedman

Conductor & Violinist

Dr. Rachel Friedman has spent her life in music as a violinist, conductor, and teacher. Raised in a musical home, she began violin and piano at a young age and started conducting and organizing orchestras in high school. Her love of playing in orchestras and teaching life lessons through music led her to study orchestral conducting, violin performance, and music education - culminating in her doctorate in May 2017.

An avid adventurer, Rachel uses music as a great excuse to travel the world and has performed, learned, and taught at many beautiful summer festivals.
