Born and raised in Victoria, BC, Rae is a violist currently based out of Toronto. Throughout North America, Rae shares her passion for performance and education. She is a graduate of the Juilliard School, the New England Conservatory and the Victoria Conservatory of Music through Camosun College.
While studying, Rae found a love for engaging with her surrounding communities. As a Community, Performances and Partnerships at NEC and as a Morse and GLUCK fellow at Juilliard, she brought performance and education to public schools, hospitals and retirement homes. Currently, Rae is a teaching artist for Sistema Toronto as well as a private violin&viola teacher.
Outside of music, Rae enjoys the thrills of creative writing and riding around the city on her bike, stopping in at a local cafe for a warm coffee and baked good!
