Rachael Aquilina

Rachael Aquilina currently works as a freelance violinist, teacher, arranger and manager of the ensemble 'Aquila'. As a performer she plays regularly with both the Perth Symphony/Chamber and Western Australian Symphony Orchestras and has shared the stage with many international acts such as Bruce Springsteen, Hans Zimmer, Hugh Jackman and Michael Buble to name a few.  She is a passionate chamber musician and regularly leads both the Fremantle Chamber Orchestra and Camerata 1685. Her music career has seen her travel the world with highlights such as touring as part of a string quartet with the UK band London Grammar and also to rural parts of Australia with the Perth classical trio Fiddlesticks on a Musica Viva educational tour. Aquila has been her newest venture, moulding the standard classical string quartet into an unconventional rock band with the addition of drums and all contemporary arrangements.
