Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Ravenna Lipchik made her debut with the Milwaukee Symphony at the age of eight playing the Bach Double Violin Concerto. She pursued her love of chamber music at such festivals as the Castleman Quartet Program, Meadowmount School of Music, New York String Orchestra Seminar, and Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival. Now a Grammy Award-winning artist for her work with the Experiential Orchestra on Ethel Smyth’s “The Prison,” her chamber music career has taken her around the world. She has performed and toured with the New Zealand String Quartet, the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) and Shattered Glass ensemble. Ravenna is also a member of the Overlook String Quartet in NYC. She received her modern violin training at the San Francisco Conservatory with Axel Strauss, and at the Juilliard School, where she is continuing her studies in the Historical Performance program.
