Arianna has also had the privilege of performing with the Tanglewood Music Center and Spoleto Festival USA orchestras, leaving an indelible mark as a violin fellow.

As a soloist, Arianna has been featured on Wisconsin Public Radio’s The Midday program. She has had the honor of soloing with esteemed orchestras including the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, Madison Symphony Orchestra, and the Cleveland Women’s Orchestra, where she also held the position of concertmaster.
